IN YOUR LETTER YOU INSIST THAT A FURTHER SEARCH BE MADE FOR RECORDS TO SHOW YOU WERE REEMPLOYED AT THE SAID ENGINEER'S BASE YARD NO. 6 SOME TIME AFTER JULY 5, 1943. ON THAT DATE THE RECORD SHOWS YOU WERE DISCHARGED FROM THE SERVICE OF THE YARD BECAUSE OF SOME PHYSICAL DISABILITY.

THE MATTER OF THAT SERVICE AND YOUR ALLEGED REEMPLOYMENT WITH LEAVE ACCRUALS WERE FULLY CONSIDERED AND REVIEWED IN OUR LETTER OF NOVEMBER 23, 1954, B-119693, TO YOU.
