Quotations
  • "I think it hasn't been that big of an issue here, and there's not many fallen soldier families in Oklahoma, so we're not really a priority," Hunt said. "I had thought about moving out of state because I felt neglected here, and my widow friends in other states have so many resources, so it's comforting knowing someone cares."

  • "I was ready to hand over my entire life savings," Hunt said. "When a military person dies, most people look at you and think you must be rolling in the cash now. My husband split the life insurance policy he had 50/50 between me and his parents, so I paid off our house and my college debt, and I don't have anything left after that. The $200 a month we get from the military will make us or break us."
