Good News! Brandy received her first DIC VA check. It came in on Friday. Very exciting news because we were told she might not get a dime for up to and possibly longer than one and a half years. She was/is a hardship case having NO money which we told the jerk at the VA. He simply said he could do nothing. He didn’t even tell her about the hardship application that, once we knew about, she filed. We had to figure that one out by ourselves. The government is so helpful. The last time I was in room 222 at regional in St. Pete, they informed a widow of two days that her husband wasn’t dead because the computer was showing him still alive.
