Army Veteran Questions

What is an Army Veteran?

According to the federal agencies, Veterans Administration and as well as various state laws, a USA Army Veteran is a soldier that has served at least one day of service and has been honorably discharged from the Armed Forces. Read below where Experts have answered questions pertaining to Army Veterans in the US.

Would a combat Army Special Forces Veteran’s child be eligible for medical Army Veteran benefits?

The assistance obtainable dependents from the VA are extremely restricted. Almost all of the help is restricted to "survivor benefits".

If someone is a former spouse of a 10-army veteran will they qualify for Tri-Care?

A person only qualifies for TRICARE IF, their marriage to a Army veteran, was at least 20 years and at least 20 years of said marriage overlapped the military service. At this rate they would be considered a 20/20 spouse and would qualify for Tri-care only if there is not a current health care plan available through their current employment.

If someone is an retired Army Veteran and has paid survivors benefit for over 30 years while married, if they remarry, what happens to those benefits paid in?

The person can transfer the beneficiary to another spouse or to a child/children based on her death. You simply need to contact DFAS and provide them with the documentation they need to justify the change in beneficiary.

If someone is working on a VA claim appeal, but the Military claims the files were lost, is there any other place to try to obtain the military reports

A person can attempt to obtain their military records from the National Personnel Archives. Here is the website --http://www.archives.gov/st-louis/military-personnel/ or can try and access their files online or have them mailed to them on microfiche.

 If a retired army veteran has been married for 20 years, and is getting a divorce is the opposite spouse entitled to their pension or VA benefits?

The spouse would more than likely have an entitlement to half of their military retirement. But the half to which the wife may be awarded is limited by federal law only to the husbands DISPOSABLE retired pay (which excludes any retired pay that has been waived in order for them to receive VA disability pay). Many questions can arise when discussing Army Veterans. People would want to know detailed information regarding Army veterans. Such as: army veteran’s benefits, army veteran’s affairs, United States army veterans. At times, this results in legal questions. Experts can answer your questions in an efficient and knowledgeable manner. People can get legal insight to help them find an option that is best suited to their individual needs.
