Thank you for reminding me that there are Veterans on this listservice 
also.  Here is probably a more complete description of the VA Hospital 
benefit SNAFU that you had posted.

                      ATTENTION  VETERANS
 
If you are a veteran, have a family member who is a veteran or know
somebody who is, this news may be of some interest to you or them.
please feel free to pass it along.
 
The President of the U.S. has recently signed into law a bill that
affects all veterans.  This law states in effect that if a veteran
has not registered at a Veterans Affairs Hospital since Oct. 1, 1996,
then on Oct. 1, 1998 he or she will loose all medical benefits for
life.
 
To make it worse, the V.A. cannot notify veterans about it. That
information must be disseminated via word of mouth or by letter.
We called the local V.A. office and  found out this information
is true.
 
They recommended that everyone eligible for benefits come by
their office, and sign up prior to the October 1st deadline,
irregardless of whether they have received treatment at a V.S.
hospital since 10/01/96.  This way no one will slip through the
the cracks.
 
You will need to bring your DD-214 to your local V.A. office and
it will only take about 5 minutes to complete the form.  This will
maintain your veterans benefits.  If you cannot locate your DD-214,
go to the V.A. office and they can help you obtain a copy.
