Yep, it was there on the table when I got back in town on Sunday, so it came some time last week.

They will send it the same way that you get your VA benefit (check or direct deposit).

O what? I haven't gotten a letter yet. Did it say what it was for?

I'm guessing you need to be at least at 10%?

Yeah my dad got his $250 already. Still waiting for mine though. Hey free money is cool. Now just to decide whether to pay car reg. or buy groceries...

Just kidding, we all know it's going for ammo!

I was looking at whitehouse.gov, it was explaining how a chunk of this $ is going to VA and VA programs and vets.
They said payments could start as early as June.

It is part of the stimulus plan. Those who work get it as reduced withholding on their taxes. Those on VA Disab, Social Security or Railroad Retirement get it directly, in the same manner they get their benefits.

The money is already ours, coming from our taxes. Never have been sure how giving me my money back is supposed to do anything great, but if it does, then wouldn't letting me just keep my money in the first place be even better?

I got mine this morning. Now I have to decide what kind of gun stuff to buy with it. Ammo, a new scope, or maybe a new gun? Maybe I'll go to the casino, but for sure I am going to do something "stimulating" with the $250!
