    Does anyone here know, if a vet's widow remarries, is she still entitled to his death benefits. Pension, compensation, etc.?

    I will go to sources for this answer when I return from work today; logically I would think not, this is not yet found fact. The veteran would have to have established pension or whatever before his demise; his children would be carried until age 18; widow I am not sure about, will post the answer when I find it.

    I did a quick search and found this link:

    Military Widows

    It looks like it depends on the age that you remarry.

    Hope that helps

    She would still be entitled to be buried in any National Cemetery, even if remarried.
