An appeal was made concerning a disallowed claim for reimbursement for travel, storage and shipment costs, damage to household goods, and selection of a home by the wife of a service member following that member's retirement. The selection of a home upon retirement is a right to be exercised only by the member, not by a dependent wife; the disallowance was sustained. (RS)
