The Worlds Largest Funeral Corporation, Service Corporation International (SCI) has denied wrong doing in the 2009 veterans abuse scandal. In true SCI fashion they made the “Not Guilty Statement” in corpse abuse but provided no evidence as to why the corporation is innocent. The sandal was first reported in April 2009 by the Washington Post. The company is also known as NYSE:SCI

From the Washington Post.

“A Falls Church funeral home that allegedly mishandled numerous bodies over the past year has denied wrongdoing. Its attorneys wrote to a Virginia regulatory board that the company has not violated any laws or industry standards and that it treats all remains with “the utmost dignity and respect.”

Lawsuits in this case.

Scandal Summarized in Pictures.

This all took place at the National Funeral home in Falls Church, Virginia. National Funeral Home in Falls Church Virginia and the Demaine Funeral Home in Alexandria Virginia.

Here are Five Scandals that have occurred at Service Corporation international in 2009. This is sad. This post serves as a reason why one should not use an NYSE: SCI funeral home. Service Corporation International  is the largest funeral corporation  in the world. In 2009 this funeral corporation has had a host of funeral scandals and has been plagued by financial problems.

NYSE:SCI Midwest Cemetery Mistreats Veteran’s Family-yourfuneralguy.

The World's Largest Cemetery Corporation ripped Memorials from a Veterans grave site without notifying the family.

The World's Largest Cemetery Corporation ripped Memorials from a Veterans grave site without notifying the family.

“A Evansville Indiana Veterans  family has been mistreated by Service Corporation International(SCI). SCI is the World’s Largest  Funeral and Cemetery Corporation. Twice in one month SCI has been  exposed disrespecting the dead. Soldiers who die in  Military Conflict deserve a sacred honor.

It is hard to take. This time SCI removed sacred memorials attached to a grave stone of a soldier who died in Iraq. This all happened at Alexander Memorial Park in Evansville, Indiana. The article appeared at the

It seems that SCI does not find it hard to mistreat Veterans Families. Earlier the month SCI was caught abusing Veterans Corpses at the Falls Church, Virginia National Funeral Home. This all went down in the midwest  in Evansville, Indiana. The title of the article in Evansville, Indiana’s Courier & Press sums what the SCI Cemetery did. “Mementos stripped from Grave In fact an IRAQ veteran’s mother’s memories were actually ripped from the grave site.

Snippet From the Article: Peggy “Hammond  vowed to turn the grave at Alexander Memorial Park on Evansville’s West Side into a welcoming refuge where family and friends could escape their grief: She set up small flags, placed a few personal mementos nearby and attached decals by Pfender’s name.

For more than three years, it worked, with friends, family and Hammond visiting frequently and finding comfort there, she said.”

But about two weeks ago, she arrived to find all of the items gone…..”

The Sad thing is that Peggy Hammond had spent &45,000 Dollars on the Grave Site Memorial.

The SCI Cemetery removed the memorials from the grave without no notice or Explanation to the Family!

It is no wonder that Service Corporations Cemetery operations were down 59% in the the last quarter of the year!

If you own NYSE: SCI stock you have a moral obligation to dump their stock!


There is a strong case for grave desecration here.

Coming Funeral Business Bailout? from Treasury?-Your Funeral Guy.

9 Apr
Funeral Industry May get Traesury Bailout

Life Insurance Funeral Industry? May get a Bailout

As all of us know the banks and the auto industry have received huge pieces of  American Bailout out pie. But the  next guys to get bailouts-some of them are a part of the funeral industry.

It appears that Funeral Directors may get a DIRECT AND REAL GORVERNMENT BAILOUT(freebie). It may happen before the coming day of  bye bye bailout pie.

The US Treasury will be bailing out Life Insurance Companies soon. It is more than apparent that many in the funeral business work with life insurance companies.


“The Treasury Department has decided to extend bailout funds to a number of struggling life-insurance companies, helping an industry that is a lynchpin of the U.S. financial system, people familiar with the matter said.”

‘The department is expected to announce the expansion of the Troubled Asset Relief Program to aid the ailing industry within the next several days, these people said.”

It was also stated it would happen very soon in th 9:00 oclock  pm central time hour on Fox News April 8th 2009.

If you are a funeral owner and connected to a life  insurance company do not go out and have a a party yet.

The World’s Largest Funeral Corporation, Service Corporation International, which can be called (thanks to the AP)

” Criminal Veteran Corpse Abuser Corporation” is in line for this bailout.

They also have ties to many  Life insurance companies like SLAICO which  is connected to SCI Preneed.

If you are a Funeral home owner in order to get a life insurance bailout you will need the permission of the CEO and Chief of the USA(last week’s Saturday nite  live sketch). You may have to bow to the Oval office or the Treasury to get your money.

Be careful though you may end up working for Uncle Sam.

In spite of my sarcasm it really is going to happen.

And I thought IFDA, MLBT, and IFDA meant bailout!
