Q189: I have three mentally handicapped children who are adults, and who were born while I was in the Navy. I was told by several doctors that my Navy experience may have had something to do with all of my children being born with mental handicaps. The doctors believe I may have something in my body that’s the cause of my children being born this way. I was also informed by medical professionals that I am eligible to receive something referred to as “Compassion Installments” from the VA because my children live with me and are under my care. Does anyone know anything about Compassion Installments?
