In the event a member of the organized militia on active duty ordered by competent
authority, is killed or dies within 2 years from injuries sustained in such line of
duty, he shall, in addition to the benefits provided by section 38A:13-1, be entitled to have a lump sum death benefit of $7,500.00 paid by the State on his
account. Such death benefit shall be paid to the deceased militiaman's wife, if any, otherwise
to his children, if any, in equal shares, and otherwise to those who would be entitled
to share in his estate if he had died intestate.
