TO MR. ROBERT D. NEWVINE:

FURTHER REFERENCE IS MADE TO YOUR LETTER OF FEBRUARY 1, 1955, CONCERNING YOUR CLAIM FOR AN ADDITIONAL AMOUNT BELIEVED DUE YOU AS A LUMP-SUM LEAVE PAYMENT INCIDENT TO YOUR DISCHARGE ON FEBRUARY 5, 1948, AS BOATSWAIN'S MATE, FIRST CLASS, UNITED STATES NAVY.

ENCLOSED FOR YOUR INFORMATION IS A PHOTOSTATIC COPY OF LETTER DATED MAY 5, 1955, FROM THE CHIEF OF NAVAL PERSONNEL, DEPARTMENT OF THE NAVY, IN WHICH IT IS STATED THAT A REVIEW OF YOUR NAVAL LEAVE RECORDS DISCLOSED AN ERROR WITH RESPECT TO YOUR LEAVE BALANCE AS OF AUGUST 31, 1946. IT IS FURTHER STATED THAT YOUR NAVAL LEAVE RECORDS HAVE BEEN CORRECTED TO SHOW THAT A BALANCE OF 13 DAYS ACCRUED AND UNUSED LEAVE WAS DUE YOU ON AUGUST 31, 1946, INSTEAD OF A ZERO LEAVE BALANCE OF THAT DATE.

ALSO ENCLOSED IS A PHOTOSTATIC COPY OF YOUR CORRECTED NAVAL LEAVE RECORD, PREPARED MAY 5, 1955, BY THE DISCHARGED NAVAL PERSONNEL RECORDS BRANCH, NAVAL RECORDS MANAGEMENT CENTER, GARDEN CITY, NEW YORK.

IT WILL BE NOTED FROM THE INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THE ENCLOSURES THAT A TOTAL OF 132 DAYS LEAVE ACCRUED TO YOU DURING THE PERIOD OF YOUR NAVAL SERVICE FROM SEPTEMBER 17, 1943, TO FEBRUARY 5, 1948, AND THAT YOU WERE GRANTED AND USED 104 DAYS LEAVE. THUS 28 DAYS ACCRUED AND UNUSED LEAVE REMAINED TO YOUR CREDIT ON FEBRUARY 5, 1948, THE DATE YOU WERE SEPARATED FROM THE NAVAL SERVICE.

ACCORDINGLY, SINCE YOU WERE PAID FOR ONLY 15 DAYS LEAVE IN THE SETTLEMENT OF MARCH 19, 1954, A SUPPLEMENTAL SETTLEMENT IN YOUR FAVOR WILL ISSUE IN DUE COURSE FOR THE ADDITIONAL NUMBER OF DAYS LEAVE DUE YOU.
