Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist. If the death of the person is related to negligence or wrongful death (not combat related), it is possible to sue under the Federal Tort Claims Act and also under the Military Claims Act.......depending on the specific claim.

If the family wants to pursue a claim, they should definitely consult a local military law attorney to file a notice of claim and navigate through the statutory procedure in order to properly plead the claim.
