Chris Ott, right, helps her son, former Marine John Thomas Doody.  J.T., who was shot while serving in Fallujah, Iraq., subsequently suffering an infection and a series of strokes that left him in a coma and relying on a ventilator to survive, Tuesday, Sept. 3, 2103, in Riverview, Fla. The Department of Veterans Affairs said Wednesday it supports expanding an enhanced caregivers benefit for grievously wounded veterans but only if Congress comes up with the billions needed to fund it. Congress created the program in 2010, giving caregivers of seriously wounded veterans a stipend, health care and at least 30 days of respite care each year. But it was limited to veterans who served after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.  Lawmakers told the VA to study the feasibility of expansion after some veterans groups raised questions about fairness.  (AP Photo/Chris O'Meara)
