Remembering Dad

By merv,

  Filed under: Blog, Veteran's Benefits

As Father’s Day approaches I remember my dad, Dr. David Miller.  Besides being a great dad, he was a physician in the Los Angeles area for many years.  Dad served in the military during WWII.  Like most veterans of the era, he didn’t talk much about his experience there. With a little digging I found his discharge papers which cited record of his participation in the Battle of Morotai and an article about the events. Morotai was MacArthur’s principal Pacific airbase. My father headed up the surgical team at the base camp, but also managed to receive two bronze stars. The battle at Morotai ended on January 14, 1945, twenty days after it began. During that time, 870 Japanese had been killed and 10 captured, U.S. casualties were 46 killed in action, 104 wounded, and 23 injured in action.


I know my father served valiantly as did many other WWII veterans.  That is one reason I am dedicated to finding ways to make their senior years a bit easier. The Department of Veterans Affairs has a pension available for non-service connected disabilities. This pension is also referred to as the aid and attendance benefit.  The requirements and characteristics needed to qualify are listed in our web article. The pension is based on the theory that the veterans served their country during a time of war and the country that they helped will now serve them by supplementing their income.
