My guess is that he retired from the Navy and when he did they gave him direct disability for his wounds and being a former P.O.W. I feel he earned every penny of it and more if you ask me.

He retired as a Navy Captain an O6 which comes with a high retirement check I doubt if he gets VA compensation if he does it's offset against his retirement and he gets the VA max and the rest from the Navy

Whatever he gets is not enough. I can't even imagine what those long time prisoners had to endure. To come out of that situation with any of your sanity left is a miracle in itself. He is not my favorite politician but he will always be a hero to me and one person I have the utmost personal respect for. God bless all of those POW's from every war. The ones from the Japanese and Vietamese prisoner of war camps are heroes of the highest caliber to me and paid a personal price to our country that no amount of money will ever make up for. Those particular camps were run by human scum.

I don't see any reference to what McCain is getting. It looks like a gobbled up copy of the general rate schedules to me.

Go to google & find out if it's true or not.

  • How to get your questions answered...


    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.


    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.


    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
