A Presidential Memorial Certificate (PMC) is an engraved paper certificate, signed by the current President, to honor the memory of eligible deceased Veterans.

Did you know that family and friends of the deceased veteran, or someone acting on their behalf, may request a Presidential Memorial Certificate? A Presidential Memorial Certificate (PMC) is a gold-embossed paper certificate bearing the official signature of the President of the United States. It honors the memory of a deceased honorably discharged Veteran and expresses the country’s grateful recognition of his or her service in the Armed Forces.

Eligible recipients include the deceased Veteran's next of kin, relatives and friends, or an authorized service representative acting on their behalf.

To request a PMC, a copy of the deceased Veteran's military discharge document (DD-214 or Certificate of discharge) along with a copy of the death certificate is needed.
