My father died after a fall at the VA hospital in Sioux Falls, SD. He fell in the lobby probably from a spontaneous hip fracture. His body could not recover - his spirit wanted him to be with his fellow vets - he loved this hospital. My sister and I were with him when he died - I informed the nurse of his death. This hospital does not hide its dead in a block covered gurney. Their bodies, which sacrificed for this country, are draped with an American flag, they and their loved ones go on the final journey through the halls, where everyone able stands in respect and salutes a fallen soldier. My father was a great man, though his name will not be known to many beyond those of us who loved him and those to whom he reached out. Thank you, veterans - I and my house will strive to honor you more.
