Hi All, I lost my mom last month. She was a Reservist in the Army for 18 years. She was never active duty. I was told to find her DD-214 and it couldn't be found so now I'm wondering if Reservists even have burial benefits? If so, where do I start?

Can you tell me if a soldier's burial case file is the same as the IDPF - Individual Deceased Personnel File? I have my grandfather's IDPF from World War II. If there is more information to be obtained, I'll be writing to St, Louis. Thank you.   Kim Clarke
