Congress wants the VA to speed up veterans' care by using private doctors and clinics, but department officials told lawmakers Wednesday their wait lists data is so bad they couldn't even be sure who has been waiting long enough to be eligible.
Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric K. Shinseki will testify next week before a Senate committee in the wake of allegations that dozens of veterans died while waiting to receive medical attention.
Dear Sgt. Shaft: I read your Nov. 17, 2010, post related to a woman seeking her military ID after having divorced her second husband. You stated that she could get her ID card but not medical benefits. Do you have a sense for whether or not widow's benefits could be reinstated after a divorce?
Dear Sgt. Shaft: I am a totally disabled veteran from service-connected disabilities. If I were to go to a nursing home, will the government or VA take any of the pay I get from veterans or from Social Security?
Dear Sgt. Shaft: I want to marry a woman who is currently receiving a widow's pension. At one point in time she had a document that said she could remarry at age 55, but lately we have been reading that the age is 57. As would be expected we cannot find that document now. Which is it? Was it originally 55 and later changed? If so, is there a grandfather clause?
