We Honor Veterans (WHV) is an awareness campaign developed by NHPCO in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

Of 2.4 million deaths in the United States each year, approximately 25% are Veterans. Most Veterans are not enrolled in VA and may not be aware of end-of-life services and benefits available to them, including the Medicare Hospice Benefit and VA-paid hospice care.

Community hospices, state hospice organizations and VA staff across the country share a common goal: to provide the best possible care for Veterans in the best possible manner and setting. WHV was established to create the educational materials and resources that hospices need to accomplish this task.

By becoming a We Honor Veterans Partner, hospices extend their commitment to the community to a larger segment of the population, have the privilege of honoring Veterans through caring for them in their last months of life, strengthen their ties with VA medical centers and other facilities, and, ultimately, may increase the quality of care provided to everyone.

To join other hospice providers across the country in honoring our nation's Veterans visit wehonorveterans.org or email veterans@nhpco.org.

This powerpoint talks about the We Honor Veterans initiative.

Her time includes a deployment to Iraq during the time when the lines of combat were being redefined (2003-2005). She deployed as Transportation Company Commander in charge of 173 soldiers, and her unit was in charge of hauling supplies throughout Iraq. Mary currently serves as a subject matter expert, consultant, and trainer for Dare Mighty Things for over five years. Her work includes multiple projects for the National Guard Bureau, Office of the Secretary of Defense, Youth ChalleNGe, and Ameri-Corp. Her knowledge and experience comes first hand from her responsibilities leading troops, being a soldier, developing and implementing programs, observing and benchmarking promising practice programs, and her overall extensive efforts to bridge partnerships among military and civilian providers.
