Before a military service member is deployed to combat, he or she must create a will that states how they want their assets distributed should they pass away. Service members have been posting on the popular website Reddit about the quirky bequests in their wills. Estate of Denial shares:
Over at Reddit, a servicemember posted about how he and a buddy each bequeathed one another $2,000 in their wills.
Sounds standard. Except, this two grand is bequeathed so that his friend — pardon the legalese — “can throw a killer party to celebrate my life.”
Yes, he got his lawyer to write in “killer party” into his will.
It gets even better. The servicemember — reddit username Citisol — “would like a cardboard cutout of me on display holding a bottle of Maker’s Mark Whisky [sic].”
Genius. Absolute genius.
Here’s the picture of the will that Citisol included.
His wife? Perfectly alright with it. “She was sitting with me as the lawyer wrote it up. She is sometimes pretty cool.”
Citisol made the post to ask for “ridiculous deployment legacies” from other serving redditors’ wills. The comments didn’t disappoint.
