That's why we were all given the option to enroll in SGLI (Service Group Life Insurance) on entering boot camp. That's the $10,000 payout when an American service member dies in the line of duty. It was an easy sell - given someone with and another someone without coverage, who do you think gets to walk in the line of fire first, hmmm?  Big Grin

Peace. Michael

SGLI. Has gone up significantly. It was $200,000 when I went to basic training in94, and went up to $400,000 in around 2004; with an additional $100,000 death gratuity to the family. In essence I am currently worth more dead than alive right now.

I signed up for SGLI in June 1972.
