Hello,
Thank you for the information and your question. In order to assist you further I will need some information. Can you tell me if you have met someone who says they are a U.S. military servicemember and they are telling you that they have to pay to take leave? Please give me a bit of background please.
I may be away from my computer for a bit this morning, but I will respond as soon as I return.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
