Social Security and Divorce or Separated

I am a disability recipent and do have a husband that I married in 1967. He was in service in the Vietnam War when we married. I was 18 years old. We stayed together for maybe five or six years after he returned home. I beleive he was in service for about 4 years its been so long for me to remember that far back. My memory is a little shaken. I am askin you if I am entitled to any of his Social Security he is still living? I also do not know for a fact if we are divorced either. I know he was in serviced and do not know if I am entitled to a check once a month from the ARMY. I do know that I found out that hae was carrying us my son and myself for a time as depedents when he was going to school. I called Winston Salem and they told me he stopped going to school once I inquired. My son passed in 1997. Is there anything that you could tell me to do in order to solve some of my questions?
Thank you,

Excerpt :

The law says a divorced woman, who was married to her ex-husband for a minimum of 10 years, is due essentially the same benefits as a woman who is currently married to her husband.
