About

If you're a Veteran, thank you for your service to our country, to the protection of our freedom! Might the start of a new year be the time when you choose to reach out to a Veteran who is at the end of his or her life journey. Patients who are Veterans are honored by pinning ceremonies, recognizing the value of their service. They also are visited by volunteers who are also Veterans - to share the camaraderie of the military experience with a fellow Veteran. The end of life for a Veteran is often complicated by the war experiences experienced, and perhaps by memories they've never shared. To come alongside a Veteran who is dying is a privilege - a Veteran volunteer sometimes offers a shared experience but always offers a listening ear. To be comfortable to be with someone who is dying is essential to this role! Volunteers reflect that what they receive is so much more than what they give in this opportunity to be with a Veteran on his/her end-of-life journey.
