Couple corrects military mix-up
DUNNELLON _ Frank Malinski is alive, well _ and paid. Last month, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs told Malinski's wife, Wanda, that her husband had died. The government wanted Wanda Malinski to return any benefits she had received after her husband's death. The Malinskis corrected the error, but feared the mix-up would delay their May check. But Wanda Malinski called the Citrus Times on Friday to say the money arrived.
