Lots of folks know at least part of the Warrior’s Ethos…“I will always place the mission first. I will never accept defeat.  I will never quit.  I will never leave a fallen comrade behind.”  For service members, it’s not just a collection of words – it’s a sacred oath or a solemn vow.  And that’s why we take care of one another in and out of the service.

One of the ways, the Lebanon VA Medical Center keeps this promise is by staffing a hospice unit.  In fact, we created the program now referred to nationally as, “No Veteran Dies Alone”. Simply put, this program ensures that Veterans have people who care for and support them even at the end stages of life.  Volunteers are there to talk, read or quietly sit with Veterans who may not otherwise have someone with them.  It can be extremely beneficial for the Veteran and the Volunteer.  Hospice care is available on both an inpatient and an outpatient basis. Contact the TLC nurse at 1-717-272-6621 ext. 6041 or 1-800-409-8771 ext. 6041 for referral or go to
