  1. Is your wife from Manila? I think some of the Philippines still have travel restrictions within the country.
  2. I have learned over the years that common sense is not so common.
  3. I was going to have my colon checked out through the VA, then I get a call from them saying that it is elective surgery and the VA is not approving any elective surgery at this time. At the local Wal-Mart they have signs up prior to entrance to the store saying you cannot enter without wearing a face mask, but folks are still entering without or are taking them off once inside, I guess the employees are scared after the security guard at a Dollar General was shot and killed trying to enforce wearing a mask prior to entrance. One sure fact is that we will all die someday and there is no need to worry about tomorrow because tomorrow may never come.
  4. As of right now John Hopkins shows 275,328 deaths world wide, positive cases world wide 3,959,249, that is 6.95540 percent chance that you will die if you get COVID-19. It has already been proven (United States Navy, onboard ships) that all that get COVID-19 do not show signs, so is that total number correct, no. Here in the United States, if you die of something that has similar signs of the COVID-19 (like the flu), your death certificate shows COVID-19, because the hospitals get paid for COVID-19 cases and not everything else, so are the death totals correct, no. Just like everything else, you can make numbers say what you want them to say.
  5. Do you see doctors for your 100%? If so have them forward your information to the VA in Manila. Do you have an address and phone number in the Philippines yet? If so contact your local VA and change your information. You cannot update your mailing address for medicine via MyHealth.va.gov. I sold my house over a month ago and got me a local P.O. Box and updated my MyHealth.va.gov address, when I did not receive my medicine I called the VA pharmacy and found out I had to call section 8 of the VA hospital (Jackson, Mississippi) not sure if all VA hospitals are the same. After being bounced around on the phone, I ended up going to a local VA clinic and they said they would update it for me. Good luck and please let me know what you had to do.
  6. I have been following what John Hopkins University & Medicine has been putting out: https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/map.html
  7. All kinds of rumors going around about more stimulus money. Eligibility for the $2,000 monthly payments under the Emergency Money for the People Act would be much broader than for the current CARES Act stimulus payments. To qualify for the monthly payments under the bill, you would have to be: A citizen or resident of the U.S.; and At least 16 years old as of January 1, 2020. The citizenship or residency requirement would be satisfied if a person is physically present in the U.S. continuously since January 27, 2020, and stays in the U.S. throughout the payment period. (A person would fail to maintain a continuous presence in the U.S. if he or she left the country for any period exceeding 90 days or for any periods, in the aggregate, exceeding 180 days.) https://www.yahoo.com/news/going-second-round-stimulus-checks-114253578.html?.tsrc=jtc_news_index
  8. Read on the internet (did a search) and the article stated if you get a check, more than likely it won't be until September 2020. The House is looking at approving a bill for two more stimulus checks in the coming months, Senate and President both agree. We will wait and see.
  9. United States Navy Medicine is putting this out about over the counter masks: Masks will not protect you from inhaling the virus. The virus is very small and can make its way through and around the mask. The best way to prevent being infected or infecting others, is to practice social distancing and good techniques (such as washing your hands regularly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, avoid touching your face, avoid sick persons, etc).
  10. Social Security Handbook 2115.Citizenship/Alien Status 2115.1How does an individual become a U.S. citizen? You are a U.S. citizen either by birth or by naturalization (see §1725). 2115.2How is an alien eligible for SSI benefits? A qualified alien can be eligible for SSI benefits if he or she meets one of the categories listed in “A” through “H” below: Who is lawfully admitted for permanent residence (LAPR), and: Has 40 qualifying quarters of creditable work; or Is a veteran, active duty member of the U.S. military or a spouse or dependant child of a veteran or member of the U.S. military; or
  11. If your wife has a social security number, she will be able to draw off your social security when she is old enough. I'm 15 years older than Olivia and she will be taken care of long after I'm gone.
  12. Are good for about 10 years. When I was young, iodine was a cure all for cuts. Don't see it used that often anymore. On deep cuts, clean it up and super glue it together.
  13. Is there a Filipino Embassy in Sweden? That would be a good starting point.
  14. Olivia has been showing me YouTube that the Mayor of Manila set up called Iskodomagoso. The progress looks good.
  15. For any prior U.S. Military go to the following site to request your medical records: https://www.archives.gov/veterans/military-service-records
