This textbook on palliative social work is a companion volume to the Oxford Textbook of Palliative Medicine and the Oxford Textbook of Palliative Nursing. To that end, this chapter will accomplish the following:

Veterans are a significant population receiving palliative and end-of-life care.

Each war cohort has a set of central issues related to their era in the service that might influence how they experience life-threatening illness and end of life.

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the respective state and local government agencies are the source of financial, educational, and health care benefits for veterans.

The VA has a well-developed program and is a source of expertise and consultation for palliative and end-of-life care for veterans.

The community at large and the VA serve veterans best when they collaborate on veterans' palliative and end-of-life issues on the federal, state, and local levels.
