About Me

Born June 1943. Disabled veteran.

Journal Archives

And at the VA CBOC,

some of the vets were saying what a great president he is because the military are getting a 10% raise and it is the first raise in 10 years. I told them to go on line to a military pay site and they could see for themselves that both are lies. Or they could just go on base and ask a Marine.

If he is, from what you wrote, I believe he is 100% service-connected disabled.

I have been 100% service-connected disabled since 1995. In that case, what he gets does not have anything to do with your income nor his as long as he is not working, by that I mean he can have income as long as it is not from working such a mutual fund is okay. Also you are eligible for CHAMPVA. If you are working and have insurance then CHAMPVA becomes your secondary insurer. You should have CHAMPVA even if you have a policy at work, because it pays all your deductible and if you get meds by mail through CHAMPVA there isn't a copay. If you get your meds from a pharmacy, CHAMPVA pays 75%. Children are also covered until they are 18 or 22 if in school. Check that last sentence to make sure about the college. Also, there are many other discounts such as buying travel and vacations at a base ticket office, doesn't matter what service. Example 5 of us went to Disney World. 4 days and all areas for $99 total for each of us. If you fly, your DoD ID makes it easier to get, in a program where you do not have to take off your shoes etc and forget those little bottles for shampoo your regular bottle and others can go in your carryon as well as your computer. Bags go on conveyer belt and you walk through the scanner. This is getting long so 2 short things. If you have your DoD ID, and you should go to nearest base to get yours, whenever you shop, ask if they give a military discount. Lowes Home Depot and many stores and restaurants give 10 %. Last, go online and check to see what state discounts you can get. I love my DV plate. Not so I can park easier, but because I speed. Yes see you VAO in your county. If you reply to this with a question, I will be glad to help. Almost forgot. even as a wife, if you need to help him get dressed or take a bath or he can't cook, my problems, he can receive extra money for A&A or housebound. Totally we received $3,790 per month.

I used to stay quiet at the VA clinic.

Now, every time a veteran says something about Trump that is wrong, I call them on it. I am sorry to say that fewer and fewer veterans are talking to me. What I am sorry about is the small number of veterans I see who agree with me.

I have rescuded animals.

I have 10 dogs and 3 cats. I also have a cockatiel, finch, hen, bullfrog and 3 tree frogs. When I was young, my father bought me a dog. A purebred blue merle collie. We went to a farm to pick it out. We saw its parents and the paperwork going back generations including health records and how often a female got pregnant each year. There is a difference between these AKC registered farms and puppy mills.

Sounds good

I was just going to bury my Wife in the back yard so I can keep getting her Social Security. She is too sick for me to throw a dinner party. What should I do with the bones? Only 2 of my dogs can handle the big bones.

Trump is saying, I will stay as President,

until you can take over and still run twice for President. Just sign this document that you have to pardon me when I step down.

I do not have a problem with the Kurds being armed.

I imagined that Syria will help the Kurds because they are less of a threat to them than Turkey is.

All links I can find are Christian Evangelical links so I can not find a true count.

Evangelicals do help the Ethiopian Jews get to Israel and build schools for them. So far, I feel that the Evangelicals are less of a threat to Israel because if Israel is overcome, there can't be a Second Coming.

So if the Kurds are asking the Syrian government for help,

Maybe the Syrians will arm them. Will someone please print a list of the players and what positions they are playing. Each day we could fill in who is doing what to whom. I always bought a program at Fenway Park and my father taught me how to use it. He worked right across the alley from the park. When I started going by myself, my poor mother had to listen to me explaining exactly what happened during the game.

Basicall the same.

I am a 100% service-connected disabled veteran so I don't pay income tax so that doesn't have an effect on us. I give to the local Baptist Children's Home, commissary and phone privileges at a local prison for the poor, pet food and vet bills for needy dogs and cats and cash for the homeless.
