Merchant Marines are not considered Veterans. Mom being divorced would exclude her from benefits as said.

My MIL and FIL had the same situation. He served in Korea. They divorced after 42 years of marriage. MIL was not eligible for anything. "Divorced" meant she relinquished any claims on any benefits.
