Obama Reinstates End of Life Manual for Veterans

In a country that enjoys advancements in technology and extremely qualified doctors, our heroic veterans must navigate through a woefully inadequate federal healthcare system.

In 1997, the VA had a 52-page end-of-life manual, "Your Life, Your Choices." This planning manual appeared to assist our vets in preparing a living will. It became clear to the Bush administration that it was being utilized for nefarious reasons and its use was suspended. The Obama administration reinstated the end of life manual.
