This document discusses the settlement disallowing credit for services rendered in the construction of a marker on a military post. It is evident from the description of the marker in this case that it constituted an improvement to the grounds, as claimed by the finance officer. The payment in the present case was made from an appropriation which provided specifically for improvement of the grounds at military posts.
