Military Funeral for My Son Adam

My Navy Son, Adam was injured in the Navy 3 years ago. Despite extensive treatment, and lots of time in intensive care, he died last Sunday in his sleep, probably from another blood clot or stroke.  
Adam was an Eagle Scout, First Class Petty Officer and a friend to all. A great Son.  The nicer a person is in life, the bigger the hole is left when they pass.  We are flying  Adam home for military burial in his home, Mishawaka Indiana Fairfiew Cemetery veterans section from Dallas Texas.   Adam served aboard the USS Tortuga out of japan where he participated in both of the the Pacific Tsunami relief efforts. The picture is of him distributing gifts to children during the relief. 
Adam was receiving both 100 percent Veterans Administration and 100 percent social security from his injuries.  We do not know how we will replace these funds to support his Son age nine.
