B-154440, OCT. 23, 1964

TO COLONEL HARRY W. MILLER:

WE REFER TO YOUR LETTER OF SEPTEMBER 30, 1964, RELATIVE TO YOUR INDEBTEDNESS IN THE AMOUNT OF $623.87 REPRESENTING EXCESS COSTS OF SHIPMENT OF YOUR HOUSEHOLD EFFECTS FROM SAN SALVADOR TO PHOENIX, ARIZONA.

WE REGRET THAT YOU WERE MISLED BY THE CABLE ICATO 93, DATED SEPTEMBER 14, 1961, WHICH INDICATED THE TRAVEL IN QUESTION WAS INCIDENT TO HOME LEAVE AND TRANSFER RATHER THAN SEPARATION. HOWEVER, A MISUNDERSTANDING REGARDING THE REASON FOR YOUR TRAVEL DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A LEGAL BASIS UPON WHICH OUR OFFICE COULD RELIEVE YOU OF ANY PART OF YOUR LIABILITY FOR THE EXCESS COSTS INVOLVED IN THE SHIPMENT OF YOUR HOUSEHOLD EFFECTS.

IF YOU PREFER TO LIQUIDATE YOUR INDEBTEDNESS BY MONTHLY DEDUCTIONS FROM YOUR MILITARY RETIRED PAY, AS INDICATED IN YOUR LETTER, THEN YOU SHOULD ADDRESS A LETTER TO THE RETIRED PAY DIVISION, ARMY FINANCE CENTER, AUTHORIZING AN ALLOTMENT FOR THAT PURPOSE. WE SUGGEST THE ALLOTMENT BE FOR NOT LESS THAN $50 PER MONTH. IF $50 PER MONTH IS AGREEABLE, YOUR LETTER TO THE FINANCE CENTER COULD BE WORDED ALONG THE FOLLOWING LINES: "UNITED STATES ARMY RETIRED PAY DIVISION ARMY FINANCE CENTER UNITED STATES ARMY INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA GENTLEMEN:

IN ORDER TO LIQUIDATE MY INDEBTEDNESS TO THE UNITED STATES IN THE AMOUNT OF $623.87, I HEREBY AUTHORIZE AN ALLOTMENT FROM MY RETIRED PAY IN FAVOR OF THE UNITED STATES GENERAL ACCOUNTING OFFICE BEGINNING THE MONTH OF DECEMBER 1964. I HEREBY ALLOT THE SUM OF $50 PER MONTH FROM MY MONTHLY RETIRED PAY FOR A PERIOD OF 12 MONTHS AND THE FURTHER SUM OF $23.87 FOR ONE MONTH, THEREBY LIQUIDATING THE TOTAL AMOUNT ($623.87) OF SAID INDEBTEDNESS.

THE GENERAL ACCOUNTING OFFICE ADVISES ME THAT IN ORDER TO FACILITATE PROPER ACCOUNTING, THE ALLOTMENT CHECKS SHOULD BE DRAWN IN FAVOR OF THE UNITED STATES GENERAL ACCOUNTING OFFICE, CR. HARRY W. MILLER (Z 1116190). THE CHECKS THEN SHOULD BE MAILED TO THE UNITED STATES GENERAL ACCOUNTING OFFICE, POST OFFICE BOX 2610, WASHINGTON, D.C. 20548.'
