    Silly questions

    Advertisements
    I have two questions that I have no idea what the answer is. I have a friend that had asked me some questions about her uncle's death, he was military veteran, from the 70s. And i was wondering, if he was dishonorably discharged (we have no clue, no one in the familiy knows), would he still be eligible for the headstone marker stating he served in whatever military branch he signed up for and would he still be able to use the VA for healthcare (ie, hospital stays, cancer treatment etc)? She recently found his grave and it has a military headstone noting which branch of the military he served, and that his family said he used the VA prior to his death. TIA!

    I can't say 100% but I would assume a dishonorable means no benefits of any sort.

    That one I don't know. I asked the hubby and he just figures if the guy had use of the VA and the like than his discharge was general or honorable.
