And my whole computer, my 21" Sony CRT (heavy mo fo), and my speakers god damaged. What would be the best way to get the maximum amount of money? My computer isn't the newest, my monitor...CRT...enough said, and my speakers are great (Logitech Z560). Lets face it, we're humans, not the most honest people, and we know that the Army (Military) in general will not give us the maximum amount of our money when it comes to stuff like this. What would be the best angle to get the maximum amount of money? My computer is about 2 years old. I spent some money on it to build it. Should I say piece by piece that it broke, or should I say I don't know anything about computers and say it broke (as a whole)? What would be the best angle towards that to get the max money? As far as monitor and speakers, I'm not too worried about. Its just in one piece, but its damaged never the less. What should I do? How should I claim the damages on my computer? And remember...we're human...and we know we get ripped off when it comes to claims from the DOD. So...how should I do this?
