A retired military member requested review of a settlement disallowing his claim for reimbursement for personal and dependent travel to his home of selection incident to his retirement. The claim was denied because the air transportation in question was not performed at the member's personal expense as required by regulation but was paid for by the member's new employer. The member was entitled to a mileage allowance for himself and his dependents from his last duty station to the appropriate aerial port of embarkation not to exceed mileage for travel actually performed at personal expense to the actual port of embarkation.
