Once his assets are gone, he may be able to apply for Medicaid.
Sorry, ur post is confusing. You say he was in the Korean war but it ended before he could go. Do you mean it ended before discharge. If so, he was in during the war. You could try for A & A now and see if he qualifies. But if on Medicaid you can't get A&A.
I believe JoAnn29 is right about not being able to get Aid & Attendance if you're on Medicaid.
