My step-father, a retired naval officer, passed away in December

My step-father, a retired naval officer, passed away in December in Christenstad, St. Croix. He left his estate to my son. However, the will was declared invalid (by whom I don't know) because it lacks an embossed seal. Supposedly people are still looking for the original. I know my dad used navy services whenever possible, so I'm wondering if he had his will done by a naval lawyer. Who would I contact to find out if he did?

I am a reservist who is going on active duty. I want to terminate

I am a reservist who is going on active duty. I want to terminate my motor vehicle lease. I found plenty of info online that under SCRA I can do it. Yet BMW is giving me a hard time saying I can not because I am not going outside of the USA. Many sources say that I can if I entered into the lease before I entered active duty and that I am on active duty for a minimum of 180 days regardless where I am being sent. I did send an email of early termination to BMW they never wrote me back just called to say I was wrong. I left the car at the dealership but don't know what to do next.
