      Hello all,

      I received an interesting request for help today which I hope someone
      from both sides of the border may have some words for. Many soldiers
      signed up with the promise of receiving a land grant after the war,
      but this leaves some interesting options. Aa soldier is killed on his
      first day of duty. Would his wife, heirs receive his land grant, or
      because he didn't finish the entire term of his enlistment, do they
      get nothing?

      I'll pass on whatever anyone can contribute.
