Veteran’s widow and remarriages – Veterans Benefits available?

Widow was married to vet who died in the Korean War.  Widow re-married a WWII veteran. Unfortunately, widow’s second spouse died and she remarried a non veteran. Widow’s third husband recently died. Any benefits available?

Since first husband was killed in the Korean War, if widow was married to firt husband veteran for at least one year or had a child by him if married less than one year, she should have received. Probably, lost entitlement for remarrying.

However, widow is now single, re-apply for DIC reinstated. Also, apply for CHAMPVA and burial benefits, if did not apply for them.
