Dear Sgt. Shaft: My husband is buried at the RIverside National Cemetery. He died on April 25, 1987, and was interred May 12, 1987. What are the requirements for spouse burial? Due to his alcoholism and abuse, we were separated at the time of his death but not divorced. Thanks to his lack of financial support for his family and his alcoholic expenditures, retirement savings were impossible. I live on my Social Security and am concerned about final expenses.
Dear Sgt. Shaft: May you please help me find information on my status. I am from Lithuania and a resident of the United States since July 9, 2010. My husband, a U.S. citizen and veteran, died recently. We had been married for 10 years. Do you have any information on when and how I might apply for U.S citizenship and how is this impacted by my husband's death.

More than 2.5 million Korean War veterans are still alive, and more than 7.5 million Vietnam vets. Gulf War vets number more than 2.25 million. In all, living veterans from war and peacetime service amount to nearly 24 million, including 1.4 million Americans currently on active duty. This amounts to less than 8 percent of the U.S. population. The other 92 percent of us owe them a debt of gratitude very difficult to repay.
