Hospice care is “holy” experience for vets, says former Stewart Guard commander


Demand: “… a holy opportunity ,,,”

TOWN OF WALLKILL – A retired commander of the New York Air National Guard Base at Stewart Airport praised the services of Hospice of Orange and Sullivan Counties at a breakfast in the Town of Wallkill on Friday.
Brig. Gen. (ret.) Dana Demand told the more than 150 veterans of all ages who attended that assisting a veteran in Hospice care is an extremely rewarding experience.
“I think it is an honorable, a holy opportunity, for all of us, to participate and help someone and their family as they approach the end of life with the treatment they get in Hospice,” Demand said.
Patricia Fayo, who serves on the Hudson Valley Veterans Task Force, told of the caring experience Hospice and participating veterans provided for her uncle as he approached the end of life.
