I got a divorce from my husband who is currently on active

I got a divorce from my husband who is currently on active duty. We have three children. As part of the divorce, he is to have the children awarded 20% of his SGLI in the event that he dies while on active duty. He told me that if something happens to him, the children will not get any benefits until they turn 18. Is that a correct statement? I thought if something happened to him, the money would be released once a claim is filed.If it matters, he is currently stationed in Texas. The kids and I live in Maine.

This is somewhat of an embarrassing question. Im currently

This is somewhat of an embarrassing question. I'm currently serving in the military as a reservist and have intentions in getting married in the state of Washington to the same sex. Our families are aware and we aren't doing anything illegal. Does the military have to find out about the marriage? Or can it be kept a secret from them and keep it to ourselves? Will the army automatically find out about this marriage? Thank you in advance.
