If a veteran dies in a VA hospital, does VA put a death notice or obituary in the newspaper?

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? VA does not submit a death or obituary notice in the newspapers due to confidential reasons. These notices are handled either by a funeral home with the guidance of the family or by the family themselves. Thus, these notices are completely at the discretion of the families or guardians of the veteran.
