The article currently reads that:
...a spouse or child may still sue the United States for tort claims (such as medical malpractice)...
However, a recent event and the news surrounding it seems to suggest this is not the case. See  for example. The article states:
But because of an old federal law called the Feres Doctrine, Read, his wife, and his family members can't sue the military over what happened to him.
I believe that more research should go into this, ultimately resulting in a citation proving the veracity of any statements related to the ability to sue for tort claims as a result of this case.
