A National law of this nature be fine with me as well. Do the words "fallen loved ones" pertain to only those fallen in the service of the United States or is the term for anyone who has passed on?

It protects everyone, but its genesis is from funerals of troops in Washington state protested by a hate group.

Oh, and it's my understanding there is already a national law that protects funerals held at federal cemeteries, like Tahoma National Cemetery, which is in my coverage area (where Cpl. Bier is buried).
