Nonappropriated Fund Instrumentality Claims
Post exchanges and other nonappropriated activities are
instrumentalities of the United States. See Standard Oil Co. v.
316 U.S. 481 (1942). Suits on claims of such entities should be
in the name of the United States, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1345.
However, checks in payment of such claims should be forwarded to
Army and Air Force Exchange Service, or, if one of its facilities
involved, to the particular club or instrumentality involved.|
