My husband took his own life at the end of November 2016. He

My husband took his own life at the end of November 2016. He was in a boatload of trouble for various infractions and they all came down on him at once. He couldn't cope and deal with all the stress and he decided suicide was the answer. Now my son and I had been visiting family for a month in March when he started on his downward spiral and in order to protect my child, we remained with family. I gave our marriage all I had trying to fix it but something happened to my husband in those months and by the end he was a stranger to us all, even his own mother. Now I know he failed a urinalysis which sparked most of his problems but there were other things too... stressors re. an upcoming advancement test, pressure to do well following a previous quarterly award, sleeping through his alarm and showing up late to work. Combined with increasing debt, vehicle troubles and our obvious marriage struggles; a multitude of things led to his mental state and ultimately his suicide. My concern is regarding the VA and survivor benefits. I'm worried they'll only see the failed drug test plus the fact that the military sent him to rehab and they'll rule his death willful misconduct which means we'll be denied benefits. They've requested statements from me, and two others re. the dates, and conditions of our time living apart, who was at fault etc. I don't want to say too much but I don't want to say too little and have them think I'm hiding something. Any suggestions for how I should word my statement and/or what to include and what I should avoid?

I have an Order of Protection against my older brother,

I have an Order of Protection against my older brother, which prohibits my brother from: aggravated harassment, harassment in the first or second degree and coercion in the second degree. I believe that he has violated my OP against him multiple times by:(a) sending me abusive txts while I was recovering from surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff and in while residing in an SRO in NYC; this caused me to have nervous breaking shortly after the harassment started and be rushed to a local ER at least ten times in the period of two months. It also gave rise to a neurological problem that presented itself as my right hand being cramped into a tight, very painful and highly disturbing.fist snd prevented me from obtaining any employment. My neurologists and I have determined that is was a neurological reaction to the stress induced by his abuse. This is well documented by my physicians and therapists.In these txts and emails, he repeatedly told me that I was mentally ill and had a substance abuse problem and should go into rehab, neither of which is true. In addition, a good friend committed suicide during this period of the abusive txts an emails.He has also told all of living relatives that I am mentally ill, which has caused all of them to sever contact with me.Before he was served with my OP against him, he induced my 85-year-old mother to take out a stay-away order against. After she passed away, he informed the police that I had violated her OP against me, and they went to one of my former residences to question me. I received a phone call from the police telling me that they were looking for me. This caused my stress levels to skyrocket, and I lived in constant fear and could not sleep do to the anxiety his actions produced. The Legal Aid Society informed the police that I was not to be questioned since my mother had passed away five months before. I am presently working on getting a FOIL report from Police HQ to verify that fact.Furthermore, he stole a number of computer components from me. Since they were stolen, I cannot prove that he stole them. He WAS however staying at my mother's apartment at the time of the disappearance of my property.Lastly, he threatened me with regard to his carrying out the liquidation of my mother's estate by saying: "If you in any way seek to hinder my duties as executor of my mother's estate, it will cost you money. This is not a threat -- it's a FACT!"Lastly, he accused me of committing credit card fraud with my mother's CC without her consent, which is not true. He is trying to subtract the amount he claims that I stole from my distribution.The last time I saw my brother in private around 10 years ago, he tried to strangle me.My brother has well documented alcohol and substance abuse problems, as well was charged with a felony a couple of years ago involving weapons and illegal narcotics. He also has a history of violent behavior toward me.Do all of these actions equal multiple violations of my OP against my brother?
