Gary Jacobi

Post by mak » May 19, 2020, 11:38 am

Does anyone on the forum know Gary? I have been trying to help Gary with his SS benefits. Gary and his wife live in NK. He is bedridden and basically in a semi coma. I am basically at an impasse. If there is a friend in the area maybe they can help.

If there is a friend of his in Thailand maybe they could help. I believe he has family in the US. I visited him last Saturday at the request of the embassy.

I cant help if you dont elaborate Mak..PM me if you wish..
I dont know the man myself, but if he's in trouble in a foreign country, without family, or friends, then I am only 40km or so away with time to kill on my hands..However, I must state for the record, that I dont have Enduring Power of Attorney if he is semi como condition, to make any calls re his health, finances, life, and I dont have details /contacts of his US family, and I have no rights with the US Embassy, but I am an ex legal begal, have some contacts with the US Embassy, and are not afraid to talk to grieving family members / wife, or guide them at such times.. I have just laid my parents to rest , and dealt with their funerals and estate, so I know a thing or two...I dont want to do it, but if knowone else sticks their hand up, who knows him, then I am in....you will have to give the heads up to him, his wife and the Embassy if I get involved, and I would need family contacts details..etc etc

Not sure what your doing Mak..you call for help but dont seem to take it when offered..Perhaps you have found what you want.. All I will add is if Mr Jacobi is a US Military Veteran, that there are a network of VFW service officers in Thailand that help Vets..If you PM me his contact details, branch of service, I will find a VFW service officer closest to his location...
