In this decision, requested by the Assistant Secretary of Defense (Comptroller), the word "person," as used in 10 U.S.C. 2771(a), interpreted to include a legal entity other than a natural person. Therefore, an Army member's designation of the U.S. Soldiers' Home as beneficiary for arrears of retired pay due at his death is a valid designation. The Soldiers' Home's claim, which was previously denied by GAO, is allowed.
