Full Military Honors Act:
Any current or retired military member, except those who were dishonorably discharged, are eligible for a military funeral. The highest level of funeral is called “full military honors,” a ceremony which includes a military band, horse-drawn carriage, and up to 70 personnel. (The minimum personnel for a regular military funeral is two people.)
Under current law, a full military honors funeral is only eligible for members killed in combat and senior officers.
The Full Military Honors Act would also allow Medal of Honor recipients and prisoners of war to obtain a full military honors funeral. There are currently 103 living Medal of Honor recipients.
The House version was introduced on February 6, 2019 as bill number H.R. 1019, by Rep. Jimmy Panetta (D- CA20). The Senate version was introduced a month later on March 5, 2019 as bill number S. 646, by Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR).

Head injury - concussions and other brain injuries can mess with your concentration.
Thyroid disease - underactive or overactive throid disease can be a cause.
Depression - When you are depressed you may eshibit f orgetfulness or inattentiveness.
Substance abuse - Overuse of alcohol and/or opiods is also one of the reasons people experience memory loss.
Vitamin deficiencies - If you don't consume enough vitamins your brain may loss its ability to function correctly.
Sleep disorders - Disrupted sleep can take a toll on your brain.
Medications - certain medications you may be taking can cause memory loss. Aging - As we get older the parts of our body change and you may notice that you can't remember where you put everything. And no, selective hearing does not count
