British Royal Marine David Hart, 23, said in his letter, he would give his 32 friends a special treat if something bad happened to him but they never expected it was going to be a vacation of a lifetime, Huffpost World said.
Before he was deployed to Afghanistan, Hart had instructed his insurance company that out of his $400,000 insurance policy he would be giving away $150,000 so that his pals and their girlfriends could enjoy a Las Vegas holiday.
The rest of his money was going to other philanthropic cause. Hart stipulated $80,000 would go to a charity group helping injured Marines and $160,000 would go to his parents.
His family and friends have launched a charitable UK bike ride to raise money in Hart’s memory expected to commence this fall.
Hart was killed in action in Afghanistan when a Taliban bomb exploded in their vicinity.
