I see no particular reason why we shouldn't allow the families of service members to be buried with their families. However, I do argue to do so, the service member should consent to it before they die in order to make sure that is what they legitimately want for not all service members are particularly close to their immediate families. I also argue that the VA should not have discretion over this. For starters, the VA has gotten a bad reputation for refusing to help who legitimately need help. In order for this to be done effectively this should fall solely on the family, the service member, and cemetery commission's discretion, because in order for a fair judgement to be provided they must be able to have an unbiased viewpoint and be able to relate to other people's pain, unlike the VA's insensitive and highly inconsiderate approach to handling people.
