I dont suppose there is a proper place to answer this question, and moderators may delete it, if desired. My brother is 81, served in WW2, Korea, Veitnam, and numerous smaller "skirmishes". he retired a masrer sgt. he kept his army insurance, and was on full disability, plus drawing his social security. just before Christmas, he went in for a knee replacement--and his heart stopped the next am. his wife has him hooked to life support, despite the dr's telling her theres no brain activity--she says she cant make it without his money! I personally, know their farm is paid for, and he had prepared for her in every way possible.my question--will the VA continue to pay for his care on life support, plus send his checks? is there a limit to extended care? and can they possibly have cut his life insurance down to burial as she says? my heart is hurting-but i know my brother is gone--i'm just wondering how long it will be profitable for her to hold his body hostage, i guess. and before anyone can think this is unusual, she has always said he'd be kicked out if it wasnt for his money.
