Dead vet not dead.


Recommended Posts

GRADUATE ! Nov 2nd 2007 American Military University !

When thousands of Americans faced annihilation in the 1800s Chief

Osceola's response to his people, the Seminoles, was

simply "They(the US Army)have guns, but so do we."

Sameo to us -They (VA) have 38 CFR ,38 USC, and M21-1- but so do we.

"The V.A. told ABC 6/Fox 28 it was notified by a third party that Manis had died."

So, the VA can find out through a "third party" that you died, yet, you need to show the VA a death certificate to get DIC for your spouse.  And then the military retirement system takes the VA's word for it,  Isn't that fourth hand.

When my dad died three years ago, the funeral home requested death certificates because they send oen to Social Security automatically.  We (the family) could buy as many as we wanted, first one free.  Maybe the VA should hook up with SS on this one and not rely on "third parties".

And who the hell is this "third party"?  Anonamous?  That's the story!

A crime,


PS, Thanks, Berta.  Nice.

Exactly, Hamslice.  It sounds like the they were still "hungover" from the "Second Party", and really tied one on for the "third party" and everyone was talking gibberish.

Too common. The VA requires 'Due Process' to reduce or debt for all reasons but death.

I'm not sure why- Perhaps they had a 15,000 Spanish-American Veterans on the rolls in 1998 who averaged 133 years old and got caught- Then over-reaction in USC and CFR.

I've said it before; when you die, VA does a brutal thing called 'FNOD' that terminates everything.
