VA should respect power of attorney

Having just read the Nov. 27 guest editorial (“Care at the End of Life”), and having just dealt with end of life issues with my late father, I wanted to comment on the use of power of attorney in these cases. Until needing to contact the Department of Veterans Affairs on my father’s behalf, I was not aware that the VA does not recognize power of attorney.
