    My Dad (WWII) died in 1973 after 25 years of marriage. My Mom remarried (another WWII vet) 12 years later. He passed away about 4 years ago after 17 years of marriage. Should she file for Basic Pension under my Dad or Stepdad?

    The application needs to be made as the widow of the 2nd husband (step-dad) Your mom would not be eligible for your dad's pension since she remarried.
