My 94 year mother is a surviving spouse of a World War II Vet as well as a former World War II WASP - Women's Air Corp Service Pilot http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Women_Airforce_Service_Pilots . The WASP's were the first female military pilots, but were privately contracted by the Army Air Corp in WW II. We were told that as a former WASP that she was NOT eligible for the Aid and Attendance Benefit. Because of this we have applied for her A&A as a surviving spouse of a World War II Vet and submitted her application to the VA two weeks ago. My question is two fold: 1) Is it correct that as a former WASP (Women Air Service Pilot) that she is not eligible for this benefit? 2) We have already submitted (two weeks ago) the A&A application for her to receive benefits as a surviving spouse. Can we submit another claim for her to receive A&A as a world war II VET and see if it goes through? We have her discharge papers.
