Yes, but not for members with Bad Conduct/Dishonorable.

Members with and OTH (Other Than Honorable Discharges) are still eligible and can receive a burial flag. There are no laws that prevent someone from purchasing and draping a casket with a flag however one will not be provided military honors by the guard to fold and present it to the next of kin if you have a dishonorable discharge. You must have at least an Honorable or OTH discharge.
