How can I find out the circumstances of my uncle's death at Anzio during WWII?
If he was in the United States armed forces, the best place to start would be the National Personnel Records Center (NPRC). Be warned, however, if he served in the Army before 1959 (or the Army Reserve prior to 1964) the record was most likely burned in a major fire that occurred in the 1970s.The 1973 Fire, National Personnel Records CenterIn those cases of fire destroyed records, its best to mail in copies to NPRC of all official documents that family has in their possession about military service. This way, the staff at NPRC can try and reconstruct a service file using alternate records and sources from the Department of Veterans Affairs.Standard Form 180 (widely available on the Internet) is also a good thing to fill out completely when you contact NPRC. It lists all critical information they need to get started.https://www.archives.gov/files/r...Since also you are a nephew, and not an immediate family member, there will probably also be a research fee, usually between something like $15 for basic work all the way up to $60 (last I checked) for extensive reconstruction cases with multiple documents.Its a good idea to just go with the flow on that and pay whats asked. Based on personal experience, NPRC has heard it all before from nephews, nieces, cousins, and grandchildren, especially the classic story about how the veteran had no children or that the distant family member is the only one still alive. Unless the requester is an immediate family member, and this can be proven with documentation, NPRC will not waive the fees.
How can I find out if someone truly served in the military? My ex has a friend that brags about having an IQ in the 170’s and 700 plus kills in the military. I don’t believe he has ever served a day. Is there a way a civilian can find this out?
If he doesn't have a veteran's ID card, then he will have a DD-214. If he's the type of person who brags about having “over 700 kills” then he shouldn't mind presenting it.Even so, most jobs where people might think someone would track “kill counts” are jobs where it's just not feasible. Thirty dudes in the desert retuning fire towards pot shots or clearing rooms aren't going to be able to reliably tell who shot whom. The only jobs I've seen try to track kill counts did so for bureaucratic bean-counting on performance reports, and they used dubious methodologies that were “technically correct” but not representative of what people usually think when someone says “I killed 700 people.”An easier way to handle this is to ask to see their MENSA card. The chances that someone would “always" brag about a 170 IQ and not carry a MENSA card to whip out at every possible opportunity is vanishingly small.Or you could do what I would do and ignore him. He's not hurting anyone, and he clearly feels like he's not getting enough attention in his life. People lie to convince both others and themselves that the truth is something other than it is.He's trying to convince you that he's smart and dangerous, and if he's lying, it's because he feels like he is neither smart nor capable. Unmasking him in front of everyone might actually qualify as needlessly cruel, considering how much work it would take.
Do military personnel need money to fill out a leave request form?
It’s great that you asked. The answer is NO. Also, whatever you are doing with this person, STOP!Bloody hell, how many of these “I need your money to see you sweetheart” scammers are there? It’s probably that or someone totally misunderstood something.All military paperwork is free! However, whether their commander or other sort of boss will let them return or not depends on the nature of duty, deployment terms, and other conditions. They can’t just leave on a whim, that would be desertion and it’s (sorry I don’t know how it works in America) probably punishable by firing (as in termination of job) or FIRING (as in execution)!!!Soldiers are generally paid enough to fly commercial back to home country.Do not give these people any money or any contact information! If you pay him, you’ll probably get a receipt from Nigeria and nothing else.

When do I have to file for an exam center in NISM certification?
I assume your question is “When should I ideally make online enrollment for an NISM Certification Examination?”As per NISM website, more than 200 NISM Test Centres are available across India. Each exam centre has specific dates for exam depending on the demand at that particular Test Centre.For example, NISM Test Centre in Delhi (CP) has 150 seats every Saturday and Sunday, whereas NSEiT - Agra Centre has limited exam seats 3 to 4 times in a month.Generally, you will find that sufficient seats are available if you are planning to take NISM Exam after 15–20 days. It may be possible that seats may get filled up as you approach closer to the exam date. This is similar to a seat booking for Indian Railways except the fact that there is no waiting list :)Therefore, once you have prepared yourself for the exam, you can make online enrollment 15–20 days in advance and utilize the time for revision and taking mock tests.You can take NISM Mock Tests and Download NISM Study Material freely online.
How to decide my bank name city and state if filling out a form, if the bank is a national bank?
Somewhere on that form should be a blank for routing number and account number. Those are available from your check and/or your bank statements. If you can't find them, call the bank and ask or go by their office for help with the form.  As long as those numbers are entered correctly, any error you make in spelling, location or naming should not influence the eventual deposit into your proper account.
