Whether you are a Veteran, love a Veteran, or provide care for a Veteran, this course will open your eyes to the “warrior wisdom” that emerges as Veterans face the end of their lives – wisdom that will help you not only “die healed”, but live healed.

It is well recognized how stoic military culture, combat training, and war itself can change a veteran in fundamental ways, and how their families may also be affected. What has been less recognized is how military experiences impact peaceful dying for Veterans – even though their death might not occur until decades later. 

In this course, you will learn about the unique needs of Veterans as they age and face the end of their lives, as well as tools for effectively responding to Veterans’ changing needs.

Course Instructor

Deborah Grassman


Few people have been with 10,000 dying veterans; Deborah Grassman is one VA hospice Nurse Practitioner who has. Dying veterans taught her lessons about how to attain personal peace. Ironically, those lessons came from people who had been trained for war! As a result, a phenomenon known as “Soul Injury” has now emerged as a relevant healthcare issue for the public. She contends that 10,000 dying veterans have lessons that the rest of us need to learn! Deborah is the author of two books, Peace at Last and The Hero Within. She is a contributing author for four textbooks, has 25 published articles, and there are 5 documentary films featuring her work.
