A military member requested reconsideration of the denial of his request for waiver of the claim of the United States against him for pay and allowances received for excess leave taken during his active service. The claim may not be waived even though the indebtedness resulted from an administrative error in allowing the leave to be taken. The member was at least partially at fault in the matter, particularly since he received regular leave and earnings statements which correctly showed a minus leave balance.
