THURSDAY, AUGUST 17, 1950 BLYTHEVII.LE (ARK.) COUBIER NEWS FARE Trie Nation Today: Veterans Benefits — Men Who Join Armed Forces Today Lose 'Benefits' of WWII By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON, Aug. 17. (/?)— For men who volunteer or are drafted Into the armed forces now, there 'K>A number of veterans' benefits •P : not all the benefits which World War II veterans got. For example: no one who joined Ihe Army, Navy or Air Force after July 25. 1948— even those now fight- Ing in Korea— can Bet these bencgot: which World War II veterans 1. Loans on a home, business or farm guaranteed by the Veterans Administration; 2, schooling at government expense; »nd. 3. unemploy merit pay which ran $20 a week for a maximum of 52 weeks for unemployed veterans of the last war. On the Other Side Still, men In the fighting In Korea, when it's over, will have been truly veterans exposed to as mucl death and danger as those who served at home or abroad during World War II. Congress will have to decide wht- tber to restore World War II benefits lor the veterans of Korea, or those who go into the armed forces nou.' but may serve at home. Under the present system, these are the veterans benefits for a man who entered the armed forces since July 25. 1943; 1. Government insurance, called National Service Life Insurance. He an get up to $10,000 worth. He buys t at so much a thousand, depending on his age. It's term Insurance. For example: a man of 21 pays 65 cents montli for each 51.000 of insurance up lo the $10.000 limit. Insurance to Survivors If he dies in service, the Insur- ant* goes lo his survivors, If hi leaves the service, he can contimn thr policy at the same rate or con vert it to a permanent policy. 2. Disability pay. He gels com pensation from the government I he's disabled by sickness, Injury o wounds, but since this ts considere peacetime, the amount of compen salion would differ according to th place and circumstances of his sick ness, injury or wounds. For example-, if he were In area of hostilities—meaning Kore right now—and was totally disable he'd Deceive $150 a month, or th full wartime compensation. If he were totally disabled by a Army truck accident in this coui try, his total disability pay would be only 80 per cent ol what 11 would have been If the accident had happened In Korea.

When a man drafted now gets out of the service, his em- aloyer must give him back his job Huspltallzsllon Benefits 4. Hospitalizatlori. A man who volunteers or Is drafted now can when he gets out. receive hosplta treatment at veterans hospitals. If he needs emergency treatment —whether his trouble U connecled with his military service or non- conuectcd—he can get it at once. And—there is always a bed for a man with a service-connected disability, whether emergency or not. A veteran with a non-service- connected disability, who ts not an emergency case, can get a bed when there's one available for him. But this Is (rue only for war veterans. Which means: Some of Ihe men fighting in Korea went into the Army since July 25, 1918. They art in hostilities^ When they become veterans andj have a non-service-connected dls-1 ability, they can get a hospital bed. But— Suppose you're drafted now and serve 21 months in this country, are discharged, and later develop z< non-service connected disability. You can't get n VA*hospital bed. Why? You're not a war veteran, or n veteran of hostilities. READS HISTORY AS HE MAKES IT-Pvt. Donald Webb of Atlanta.
