The Departing Warriors Project is inspired by the need for specially trained Hospice Volunteers to accompany Veterans facing their final deployment. Many of these Vets await the final stages of their lives alone. Having served this country with honor and distinction, The Departing Warriors Project seeks to serve these men and women facing their final mission…without having to face the journey alone. Bearing Witness to their Final Deployment ® Bearing witness means listening deeply. Listening without judging. Listening to become one with another. Giving another human being absolute and total recognition. Bearing witness is not mere observation or simple presence…it is wise, compassionate, mindful action.
