I am still not clear on what the question is.

If this is regarding a military base or a US service member claiming they need money that is a red flag.

For example, here is an FTC warning about military photos being stolen and used in scam; please see:

https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/blog/2015/07/faking-it-scammers-tricks-steal-your-heart-and-money

This explains the warning signs of scams.

A fiance is not next of kin based on US law; that requires either a blood relation, a relationship through marriage or through adoption.
So if a miltary base is asking for funds that is not likely to be legitimate because a fiance is not next of kin.

As for next of kin issues, there is no charge to list a beneficiary.

Similarly the military would not use an agent for financial transactions.
