I have been a member for years and Gold Star Wives aggressively fights for widows/widowers and all survivors regarding VA benefits.I think they might have some GSW service officers but their main function does not involve individual claims, geared more towards legislation that would benefit many.

They have proposed all sorts of legislation and ,in my opinion,they get more done for survivors of veterans than any other vet org does and have given testimony to H VAC and S VAC.

The link I gave you -this is more information----Colonel Dan sent it to me from someone else:

"Please understand that this refers to Tricare,

Prime  and not Tricare for Life.  Some are

misintrepting that.

So far as I know there are no proposed increases

to the Tricare for Life program.   TFL is related

to Medicare, Part B.

Please read the below  article from American Forces

Press Service  in its entirety.

    • 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.
