A MAN REENLISTING ON BOARD ANY SHIP, WHO DOES NOT DESIRE TO RETURN FOR DUTY ON BOARD THAT SHIP, MAY AT HIS OWN REQUEST BE GIVEN ORDERS TO REPORT TO A RECEIVING SHIP FOR GENERAL DETAIL, UPON EXPIRATION OF LEAVE, PROVIDED ALL TRAVEL PERFORMED WHILE IN A LEAVE STATUS IS PERFORMED AT HIS OWN EXPENSE.

THE REGULATIONS UNDER WHICH YOU WERE GRANTED LEAVE AND GIVEN PERMISSION TO REPORT TO ANOTHER STATION FOR DUTY UPON THE EXPIRATION THEREOF SPECIFICALLY PRECLUDE PAYMENT OF TRAVEL EXPENSES WHILE YOU WERE IN A LEAVE STATUS; AND SUCH PROVISION WAS STIPULATED IN PARAGRAPH 3 OF YOUR ORDERS. YOUR REQUEST FOR LEAVE, AND, AT EXPIRATION THEREOF, ASSIGNMENT TO DUTY AT THE RECEIVING STATION AT PHILADELPHIA INSTEAD OF BEING REQUIRED TO RETURN TO DUTY ON THE U.S.S. ARIZONA, WAS GRANTED FOR YOUR OWN CONVENIENCE, THE CHANGE OF DUTY STATION NOT BEING NECESSARY TO THE PUBLIC BUSINESS. THE TRAVEL PERFORMED BY YOU IN EFFECTING THE CHANGE OF STATION BEING INCIDENT TO YOUR LEAVE STATUS, AND THE CHANGE OF STATION HAVING BEEN DIRECTED FOR YOUR OWN CONVENIENCE, AND NOT BECAUSE OF PUBLIC NECESSITY, YOUR ORDERS ARE PERMISSIVE IN CHARACTER AND DO NOT ENTITLE YOU TO REIMBURSEMENT FOR COST OF TRANSPORTATION FOR THE TRAVEL INVOLVED.
