TO MR. KEITH E. KENDALL:

REFERENCE IS MADE TO YOUR LETTER DATED OCTOBER 5, 1955, IN WHICH YOU ENCLOSE OUR DECISION OF JUNE 1, 1951, B-101966, TO YOU, CONCERNING YOUR CLAIM FOR AMOUNTS BELIEVED TO BE DUE ON THE DATE OF YOUR DISCHARGE, MARCH 23, 1950, AS AN ENLISTED MAN, UNITED STATES NAVY.

THE DECISION OF JUNE 1, 1951, CONTAINS A CONSOLIDATED STATEMENT OF YOUR PAY ACCOUNT FOR THE PERIOD JULY 1, 1949, TO MARCH 23, 1950, AND SHOWS TOTAL CREDITS OF $1,211.80 AND TOTAL DEBITS OF $1,208.07, A DIFFERENCE OF $3.73. THE DIFFERENCE WAS ALLOWED TO YOU BY OUR SETTLEMENT OF JUNE 12, 1951. ONE OF THE DEBIT ITEMS SHOWS A CHARGE OF $556.90 FOR AMOUNTS PAID TO YOU AS FOLLOWS:

JULY 1 TO DECEMBER 31, 1949 $305.00

JANUARY 1 TO MARCH 23, 1950 $182.90

SINCE THE AMOUNTS SHOWN TOTAL ONLY $487.90, OR $69 LESS THAN THE AMOUNT OF $556.90 CHARGED, YOU INQUIRE WHETHER YOU ARE ENTITLED TO THE ADDITIONAL SUM OF $69.50 ($69).

A REEXAMINATION OF YOUR MILITARY PAY RECORD FOR THE PERIOD JULY 1, 1949, TO MARCH 23, 1950, DISCLOSES THAT YOU WERE PAID THE SUM OF $305 DURING THE PERIOD JULY 1 TO DECEMBER 31, 1949. DURING THE PERIOD JANUARY 1 TO MARCH 23, 1950, YOU WERE PAID, IN ADDITION TO THE SUM OF $182.90, THE SUM OF $69, WHICH AMOUNT WAS INADVERTENTLY OMITTED FROM THE STATEMENT OF ACCOUNT IN THE DECISION OF JUNE 1, 1951.

ACCORDINGLY, SINCE YOU ACTUALLY WERE PAID THE SUM OF $556.90 FOR THE ENTIRE PERIOD FROM JULY 1, 1949, TO MARCH 23, 1950, THERE IS NO BASIS FOR FURTHER OR DIFFERENT ACTION THAN THAT TAKEN IN THE DECISION OF JUNE 1, 1951.
