ABSTRACT
The article proposes a framework for analyzing claims that may involve the combat exclusion to achieve an effective foreign claims program. Foreign claims are investigated and reviewed by the Foreign Claims Commission (FCC). The common packet of foreign claims include documents like medical treatment records, statements from the claimant, a claims card with the unit's contact information and photographs. Countries in which foreign claims are commonly filed include Iraq and Afghanistan. The purpose of the Foreign Claims Act (FCA) is to promote and maintain relations through the prompt claims settlement. Combat exclusion is a provision of FCA that prevents payment of claims resulting directly or indirectly from acts of the U.S. Armed Forces.
