If a veteran dies in a VA hospital, does VA put a death notice or obituary in the local newspaper or newspaper from where the veteran lived?
For confidentiality reasons, VA does not submit a death or obituary notice to newspapers. Such notices are at the discretion of the veteran's family or guardian and are handled either by the funeral home with the family's guidance, or by the family itself.
