Wills with Quirks

WillsMany members of the military draft wills before serving oversees in combat. Some servicemen have taken this opportunity to draft some of the funniest and interesting wills. For example, two servicemen bequeathed to each other $2,000 for the purpose of hosting a "killer party in each others honor." In other words, if one of them should die, the other promised to take the money and throw a huge party. The cherry of top is that one of them stated that he wanted the other to set up a cardboard cut out of the deceased servicemen at the party with a bottle of Maker's Mark Whiskey in his hand. Others were more meaningful. For example, one servicemen stated that his wife would receive the full value of his Group Life Insurance on the stipulation that she travel the world.
