Do military members have to pay any fee for leave or fiancee forms?
NOOOOOOO. You are talking to a military romance scammer. I received an email from the US Army that directly answers your question that is pasted below please keep reading.I believe you are the victim of a military Romance Scam whereas the person you are talking to is a foreign national posing as an American Soldier claiming to be stationed overseas on a peacekeeping mission. That's the key to the scam they always claim to be on a peacekeeping mission.Part of their scam is saying that they have no access to their money that their mission is highly dangerous.If your boyfriend girlfriend/future husband/wife is asking you to do the following or has exhibited this behavior, it is a most likely a scam:Moves to private messaging site immediately after meeting you on Facebook or SnapChat or Instagram or some dating or social media site. Often times they delete the site you met them on right after they asked you to move to a more private messaging siteProfesses love to you very quickly & seems to quote poems and song lyrics along with using their own sort of broken language, as they profess their love and devotion quickly. They also showed concern for your health and love for your family.Promises marriage as soon as he/she gets to state for leave that they asked you to pay for.They Requests money (wire transfers) and Amazon, iTune ,Verizon, etc gift cards, for medicine, religious practices, and leaves to come home, internet access, complete job assignments, help sick friend, get him out of trouble, or anything that sounds fishy.The military does prall the soldier needs including food medical Care and transportation for leave. Trust me, I lived it, you are probably being scammed.

Where can I adopt an army retired dog?
I wonder how many of you are aware of this. Once an army dog gets old ( 8 - 9 yrs) he/ she is given an honourable retirement and shifted to this old home for dogs at RVC centre Meerut where they remain for the rest of their lives. All the dogs here are also available for adoption by dog lovers free of cost. Though they are old ( 8 +) they are highly trained and most of them (at least those who are below 10) are extremely fit and sprightly. They are adopted both by individuals and by units as guard dogs. Some of these dogs have even been awarded a COAS commendationSending the application sample herewith,however it should be addressed toComdtRVC Centre & CollegeMeerut CanttMeerut - 250001and not to the DG as is shown in the letterThe striked out parts contain name and from address.
Do military personnel need money to fill out a leave request form?
It’s great that you asked. The answer is NO. Also, whatever you are doing with this person, STOP!Bloody hell, how many of these “I need your money to see you sweetheart” scammers are there? It’s probably that or someone totally misunderstood something.All military paperwork is free! However, whether their commander or other sort of boss will let them return or not depends on the nature of duty, deployment terms, and other conditions. They can’t just leave on a whim, that would be desertion and it’s (sorry I don’t know how it works in America) probably punishable by firing (as in termination of job) or FIRING (as in execution)!!!Soldiers are generally paid enough to fly commercial back to home country.Do not give these people any money or any contact information! If you pay him, you’ll probably get a receipt from Nigeria and nothing else.
How do dog breeders know their dogs history? Is there a way to find out an adopted dogs history?
Good dog breeders, the ones who breed for health and temperament rather than quantity or money, never (outside of exceptional circumstances) breed a dog whose genetic background they don’t know. Some countries, such as Finland for example, have online databases of family trees for a given breed. The Finnish database lists any official test results for a given dog, which pairing resulted in an epileptic puppy and should therefore not be bred from again, cause of death for any dog whose death has been reported, and other pertinent facts like show performance and disqualifying illnesses.All this means that good breeders will (with very few exceptions) only use dogs from recorded lines, not some random dog that looks kinda like [insert breed here]. Registered (read: purebred) dogs are all microchipped, and the chip numbers are added to the database when the breeder registers a litter.If a dog of unknown origin (looks like [insert breed here] but has no papers) has some incredible quality that they really want to breed in and a temperament to match, they might decide to do genetic testing. They’ll also get a vet to do official tests on the dog’s hips, knees, eyes, heart - anything that might have structural problems that could be passed on to the next generation.Then, and only then, will they (maybe) breed this dog of unknown parentage.If there isn’t an incredible quality, they simply won’t take the risk of breeding that dog.
What form does a soldier in the military need to fill out to add someone they are married to in the military data base?
What form does a soldier in the military need to fill out to add someone they are married to in the military data base?The soldier must take a copy of the marriage certificate to his personnel office to get his spouse enrolled in DEERS and fill out a DD 1172. He must update his DD 93 and should (but is not required to) update his SGLI beneficiaries.None of this costs any money at all. Since all of this information is readily available to anyone who is actually in the military, my guess is that you are falling victim to a scammer.Military Romance Scams by Sean Sanders on Posts
