  • Valor7: Actually no it is not, a dependable Revenue stream will not come on line until the 4th quarter of 2017 so 2018 budget will be up in the air, not quite sure what they will have. By 2019 budget all will be well.

  • Valor7: I could have worded that better, we talked details, options, the pros and cons of each, in  order to arrive at the best ballot language to present to the voters. Hope that makes this clearer.

  • Valor7: sorry about the typos still working with just one arm in action
    April 13, 2016, 01:10:42 PM
  • Valor7: Yes and no. We talked details and options until we were blue in the face but I never heardbring it over, it was always the time was not right for the issue to pass. Glad to see the time in now right and I for one shall vote yes on the ballot. I would urge all others to do the sameour county is busting at the seams crimewise and no matter how many bad guys we send off there always seems to someone to replace them. The Sheriff's Office needs the help.

I am not sure who to talk to about this. My father was active duty when he died March 15, 1976 in the army. Anyhow I was also told that when my mom passed away that the military would pay for half of her funeral and that is what my mom said they told her. Well my mom just passed away april 26 and my brother called someone over at ft wood and told him they dont pay anything on the spouses, but if that is true why did they always tell my mom they would? Does anyone on here know if any of what they told my mom for years is the truth or did they lie to her all these years? What was the purpose of all the years my dad served to make sure my mom was taken care of to only be lied too. If anyone has any info please fill me in. As I said my dad was active duty not retired.

I searched numerous sites, and this is the only reference to dependants...

I really believe the government sucks!!!! My father spent his life in the army so he could take care of my mom and his family. When my dad died my mom was told that when she passed the military would pay for half her funeral cost. But no my brother found out today from the one at the VA that years ago yes was true but with all the changes made they will pay 0 on the spouses funeral. What is the purpose of these people fighting for us and our freedom and making spouses believe that they will be taken care of too only to find out it is all a lie?!?! I bet my dad is rolling over in his grave thinking he made sure stuff for my mom was taken care of only to find out they not only lied to her and us, but they lied to him saying he served his country to take care of her. Sorry just really ticks me off that everything we were told by the Army turned out to be a big fat lie!!!!!!

I'm sorry for your loss.  I lost my mother four years ago and it still hurts.  I think that is if the Veteran is buried in a National Cemetary.  You could check with the National Cemetary at Fort Leonard Wood and they would know for sure or maybe something they can do to help you.  My husband and I have pre-arranged burial at that cemetary, headstones arranged and wills done up.  We are fairly young (in my opinion), but I don't want my kids to have to go through unnecessary hurt if I can help it.  Everyone should make arrangements beforehand and keep advised on changes.

So true, my husband and I have got our plots and our trust already done up and as we have talked about when we can get a little more ahead I want us to get our headstone and other parts of the funerals done up and told him as soon as we can afford it I want to get life insurance cause I dont want our kids to have to worry about what to do or how to pay for anything. My husband doesnt like to talk about none of this but i want a little bit of piece of mind knowing things will be done as we want and already taken care of. And I know alot of people dont want to talk to their children about insurances and other things but make yourself do it so that way no one has any confusion if you have insurance and how much and where the policy's are at and keep them up to date cause like in our situation were not sure what insurances my mom had were still good and what ones werent no good so just praying that the funeral director finds out if she had enough to pay for my moms own funeral.
