Thanks, T. R.
This is a great question as there are many benefits available to US service veterans, their dependents and spouses.
Recently additional funds have been allocated that offer up to $1900/month!!
For the most updated advice and to get your benefits, contact your local Veterans’ Administration office as well as checking out the most recent site about those benefits from the US government at http://www.va.gov/opa/publications/benefits_book.asp.
