    Got a letter in the mail from the VA. The following is a short portion of it
    Correct me if I'm wrong...but they have to treat you for free for any illness or injury received on Active duty period..combat related or not...for the rest of your life. right?

    Only if you make sure its listed as 'service related'
    Which some of the rules for are convoluted.

    Maybe they mean no copay or Tricare needed.

    VA healthcare is free for any disability incurred while on active duty and has filing deadlines and requirements to get each condition approved as service related etc and continues for life.

    The letter you got seems like a stop gap measure to treat anything (possibly related..) for a while. I would guess it was part of someone's campaigning or lobbying to get votes though I didn't hear about the legislation.
