placed in the closed Health Record and one copy
is sent to the Commanding Officer, Naval
Medical Data Services Center, Bethesda, MD
2. For inactive duty decedents, the distribu-
tion is the same as in paragraphs 2 and 3 above

a ship, at a naval station, or on a naval aircraft.
For full details, see MANMED, chapter 17.
