How can a veteran enroll in the veteran's health care system and what is the cost of prescriptions?
Veterans must fill out a 10-10-EZ Form (which can be picked up at your county Veterans' Office) and supply an honorable discharge (DD-214).  Prescriptions are $8.00 for 30-day supply.
How can we get a discharge paper of a deceased veteran or for a veteran that has lost it?
A discharge may be obtained by checking with your local Veterans' Office (if the veteran has filed his discharge with the county), or one can be obtained by filling out a form SF180 to request a discharge from the national personnel records center.
What is a compensation claim?
