You probably know that the SRRV is on hold and no one knows when or if it will be active again. 

I know.  Tomorrow, May 14th.  :smile:

I remember 2 dear friends with the same plan.  Both made it back to the US the first time they had a medical necessity but both died the second time as they were too sick to fly.  So it works . . some

Female companioship won't be hard to get... but almost guaranteed to be an "issue" 

You probably know that the SRRV is on hold and no one knows when or if it will be active again.  My opinion is if you are thinking of staying in Newtown or anywhere start by finding Airbnb unit

I won't be giving up my Medicare so I will be keeping my US health insurance in case I have a major health issue.

I don't think MEDICARE is available outside the United States, you might want to research that.

I think he means he will keep paying it in case he needs to use it in the states, but you are correct, it can't be used in PH.  Guam is the closest place to use Medicare, I think.

I understand it is only in the US,  My point is I could come back for care here if it was deemed medically necessary.  Thanks for your reply.

They are back up now.  Thanks.  I knew they were about to reopen the SRRV again.  Question is how long will they be open??  Thanks for your reply.

Great point.  I am also a veteran with a good DD214.  I am exploring that as a possibility also as the costs are much less.  still a little fuzzy on that one cause first they say you need a DD214, then they say you must be retired military.  I am the first one, but not the second.  Thanks.
