the Home to that hospital for treatment;

the commanding officer of the place or command shall permit the

legal representative or the surviving spouse of the deceased, if

present, to take possession of the effects of the deceased that are

then in camp or quarters.

(b) If there is no legal representative or surviving spouse

present, the commanding officer shall direct a summary

court-martial to collect the effects of the deceased that are then

in camp or quarters.

(c) The summary court-martial may collect debts due the

decedent's estate by local debtors, pay undisputed local creditors

of the deceased to the extent permitted by money of the deceased in

the court's possession, and shall take receipts for those payments,

to be filed with the court's final report to the Department of the

Army.

(d) As soon as practicable after the collection of the effects

and money of the deceased, the summary court-martial shall send

them at the expense of the United States to the living person

(3) A parent of the deceased.

(4) A brother or sister of the deceased.

(5) The next-of-kin of the deceased.

convert the effects of the deceased, except sabres, insignia,

decorations, medals, watches, trinkets, manuscripts, and other

articles valuable chiefly as keepsakes, into cash, by public or

an inventory of the effects, and articles not permitted to be sold,

to the executive part of the Department of the Army. The Secretary

of the Army shall deliver to the Armed Forces Retirement Home all
