Sure with they had something like this closer to SE TX, where I live! I think it sounds like a great idea. As the wife of a VietNam Vet 100% TDIU, I can see how this would be helpful!

they need to do this more frequently and all over it would help the family members know who to call, how to deal with affected person, ways to cope, support groups for helping each other etc, the best thing that ever happened to me was finding Dori who knew what she was delaing with and to her it was worth the rough edges to get the diamond in the middle, I still think she's blinded by love but what the hec k I couldn't ask for better............ but it helps that she knows and understands PTSD

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
