TriCare is for active duty and retired military personnel. I don't qualify.<quoted text>
Do you get/use Tricare in addition to Medicare? If Lois aka Carol's husband is a veteran, does he not get Tricare for him and his family?
I didn't realize that the VA lent money for down payments on homes; so they don't lend for the entire mortgage?
I have Medicare, a small VA supplement and a another supplement through the VFW that I pay for.
The VA offers a few different versions of home buying assistance. I've never used that service, it's time consuming and cumbersome.
I did use the GI bill to finish college__that was an easy deal, the schools registrars office took care of all the details__I had several great choices.
It's not such an easy deal for the returning Iraq/Afghanistan vets__they're basically getting hosed.
