Military retirement pay is not welfare.

The income counts toward the support requirement with no detriment.

If he is also getting disability payments from the Veteran's Administration, those can be counted toward the support requirement too.

However, that IF the US fiance has been on welfare or other

government benefits for a lifetime or has no plans to work actively, the consulate can still deny the visa based on

the likelihood that the foreign fiance will become a public charge. Just having a co-sponsor may not be sufficient.

An actual case has been documented wherein a fiance visa was denied because the petitioning fiance was on

government benefits and would not be working, even though the US fiance had two co-sponsors.

what is this means? kindly explain further pls...

There's a huge difference between government assitance (welfare) and retirement pay. Lifetime retirement pay and veteran benefits are earned and do not make anyone a public charge and are not considered government assistance.
