B-86001-/F), OCT. 10, 1955

TO MAJOR DAVID H. FAUSTMAN, USAF:

CONSIDERATION HAS BEEN GIVEN TO YOUR LETTER DATED MARCH 29, 1955, FURTHER CONCERNING THE DEBT CHARGE AGAINST YOU COVERING PAYMENTS OF INCREASED RENTAL AND SUBSISTENCE ALLOWANCES ON ACCOUNT OF AN ALLEGED DEPENDENT MOTHER DURING THE PERIOD FROM MARCH 1, 1944, TO FEBRUARY 28, 1950.

IN YOUR LETTER YOU REQUEST FURTHER INVESTIGATION OF THE FINANCIAL STATUS OF YOUR MOTHER, AND YOU REFER TO TWO JOINT BANK ACCOUNTS TO WHICH YOU DEPOSITED MONEY AVAILABLE FOR YOUR MOTHER'S USE IN AMOUNTS OF $125 A MONTH AND $50 A MONTH, RESPECTIVELY, WHICH, TOGETHER WITH THE $50 MONTHLY PAID AS A DIRECT ALLOTMENT TO HER, MADE A TOTAL OF $225 MONTHLY AVAILABLE FOR HER USE. YOU SUGGEST THAT SINCE SUCH TOTAL EXCEEDED FIFTY PERCENT OF THE FAMILY LIVING EXPENSES OF $292 MONTHLY YOU CONTRIBUTED THE CHIEF SUPPORT OF BOTH PARENTS. THIS CONTENTION, HOWEVER, FAILS TO TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE FACT THAT THE TOTAL INCOME OF YOUR PARENTS FROM SOURCES OTHER THAN YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS LIKEWISE EXCEEDED FIFTY PERCENT OF THEIR LIVING EXPENSES MAKING IT UNNECESSARY FOR YOU TO CONTRIBUTE AS MUCH AS HALF OF THEIR LIVING EXPENSES. THIS BEING SO, IT DOES NOT APPEAR THAT A FURTHER INVESTIGATION OF YOUR MOTHER'S FINANCIAL STATUS WOULD SERVE ANY USEFUL PURPOSE.

YOU IMPLY THAT DUE TO YOUR FATHER'S MENTAL AND PHYSICAL CONDITION DURING THE PERIOD INVOLVED THE CIRCUMSTANCES IN YOUR CASE WARRANT AN EXCEPTION TO A STRICT APPLICATION OF THE "FAMILY UNIT RULE.' THERE IS NOTHING WHICH INDICATES, HOWEVER, THAT THE SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES ADVERTED TO REQUIRED ANY UNUSUAL EXPENDITURES FOR YOUR FATHER WHICH WOULD MAKE HIS SHARE OF THE FAMILY EXPENSES MATERIALLY GREATER THAN YOUR MOTHER-S.

ACCORDINGLY, THERE IS NO BASIS FOR MODIFICATION OF THE CONCLUSION IN THE LETTER TO YOU OF MARCH 16, 1955, WHEREIN YOU WERE ADVISED THAT THE MATTER WAS AGAIN BEING BROUGHT TO THE ATTENTION OF THE SECRETARY OF THE AIR FORCE FOR APPROPRIATE COLLECTION ACTION UNDER THE PROVISIONS OF THE ACT OF JULY 15, 1954, 68 STAT. 482.
