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
