  • I heard on AFN from I think Tom Tarantino, senior legislative associate for Th VA :
    Disability and pensions are protected.Mainly because because of a Justice Dept ruling from 90's that deemed such pmts as "property" that belongs to the vet/eligible dependent.

  • It won't last long enough to affect him even if it would.
