Please explain to me,

what is in his post that makes you assume that he believes everything the State Department says.

Some because they agree with him even when he lies.

Some because they don't want to admit that they voted for the wrong person. It is the same reason that every former German soldier I met told me that they had fought on their Eastern front.

There is a time and a place to use profanity.

The time and the place is anytime you are talking about or to Trump.

Why would they do such a thing.

I mean who else do we know that would use a phony health problem to keep from, oh that's right. Never mind.

This is why I feel that anyone Trumps asks to run a department,

but does not agree with Trump, should take the job. Then do what is right no matter how much Trump is against it. Just make sure that the people know why you took the job and what changes you are making.

Because,

I grew up with The Three Stooges or didn't grow up, with The Three Stooges. Also The Marx Brothers and Bud and Lou. "Slowly I turned step by step inch by inch" The greatest being "Whose on First" Yes, I am that old.

100% work and divorce.

You are correct that there are two different 100% service-connected disabled. I am 70% disabled due to a service-connected disability, but I am 100% disabled because I am not able to work. As far as divorce and remarriage goes, this applies to the spouse. A spouse that gets a divorce may still keep their CHAMPVA. If the spouse remarries the spouse loses CHAMPVA, but if that marriage ends in divorce or spouse dies, they may get CHAMPVA back. I should have written about the DAV and The American Legion, I have been a member of both since 1999 and they have members that have more knowledge than your VAO in some areas. Work with all three can save you a lot of headache. One other thing for veterans who read this. I am 100% service-connected disabled, but my disability does not have anything to do with being in the service. In other words, even if I had not enlisted in the army, I would still be 100% disabled the difference being in that case, I would be living on $800 SSI, food stamps and Medicaid.

Aid and Attendance

If he needs any help now or in the future, have the VA Officer closest to you put in the paperwork. Even if they say he won't get it, have them put in the paperwork anyway. I found that certain things are not really know about A&A and SMC, Special Monthly Compensation. I have look them up in the past and found that one veteran gets them and another veteran with the same disabilities does not. Okay, I just talked to my wife. We made out the paperwork for CHAMPVA as soon as we got married. Since she did not have any medical insurance CHAMPVA became her primary and they gave us a list of good insurance companies for secondary. The only time I know of that CHAMPVA becomes secondary is if you have Medicare. The cost for the secondary insurance depends on your age. Really check this out for yourself. You maybe able to have CHAMPVA and a secondary. It is nice not having to pay for medications, they mail you a 90 day supply at a time. Your husband should be covered for everything through the VA and you with those two plans you are covered for almost everything. Vision I know is not covered. I know there is a lot of information in my posts, but it can save you money. Not something I like to write, but it is important. With divorce or death of the veteran, the spouse keeps CHAMPVA. NOW FOR ANY VETERAN OR SPOUSE READING MY POSTS, IF THERE ARE ANY ERRORS, PLEASE POST THEM. And if your VAO says you are not eligible for something, put in for it anyway. The only way that veterans and their families will get what they deserve is for other veterans to help them. This is not charity or government assistance. You held up your part of the contract, make the government hold up its.
