It really is tacky, isn't it. I suspect the original clause was written in to cover circumstances where, for instance, bombs were dropped on a country and thousands killed and homes destroyed, etc.
If nothing else, knowing this exists here in Canada makes me suspect it also exists in the same 'fine print' in many Countries.
As it is right now, I suspect there are thousands upon thousands of soldiers who have no idea that upon their death their families may well be left homeless. And if they learn of it now, imagine the added stress this must add to both they and their families.
Nope, if it's not already some Government's plan to ensure this doesn't happen, it should be and soon! Good grief! Must admit if given a choice of serving my country and risking my spouse and children being left without the family home I'd been paying insurance against for years, I'd be seriously thinking of politely but firmly refusing the government's offer!
Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.
While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.
