Abstract

One aspect of palliative medicine that has been underexplored is the perspective of veterans either facing critical life-limiting illness or at the end of life. The needs of veterans differ not only because military culture affects how veterans cope with their illness but also because exposure-related factors (combat and environmental) differ between military branches. In this paper, we describe two cases involving end-of-life care for veterans with combat trauma and describe individualized approaches to their care.
