Dear Sgt. Shaft: Thank you for your inquiry on behalf of Mr. Ben B. regarding the health care services available to him at the Kansas City VA Medical Center (KCVAMC) and his family's need to purchase a wheelchair accessible vehicle.
House Republicans said Wednesday that the Veterans Affairs Department may not be ready to handle hundreds of thousands of veterans who may sign up for health benefits next year to meet the new individual mandate under President Obama's health-care law.
Dear Sgt. Shaft: I have been searching the Web for some information and found your site. I thought possibly you could help me. We lived in New Jersey for 30 years, and my husband found much pleasure digging with his metal detector at a lake near our home when the dam broke. Among many of the items he found was a dog tag for: William Thomas McClain — 713-07-82 — T644TYPE-O USNR/C. I would like to return his dog tags to him and wonder if you could give me any info as how I could find info on his whereabouts.
Dear Sgt Shaft: I have a question regarding my younger brother. He is 33 years old and has been mentally and physically handicapped since birth. My parents adopted him when he was an infant/toddler. My father was retired from the North Carolina National Guard after 30 years of service. He passed away from metastatic colon cancer in 2007. We have been told that my younger brother is eligible for VA benefits. I have called multiple organizations and seem to get nowhere and now don't know where to turn for a definite answer.
He said veterans consider many factors when deciding where to seek health care, and said more than 75 percent of veterans already use some type of health insurance outside of their VA benefits.
"We're not going to know these things with absolutely certainty until we get to the point of actually implementing the law," Mr. Petzel said.
