Reconsideration was requested of the disallowance of a Marine Corps member's claim for per diem allowance, mileage allowance, and cost of bridge tolls for a period extending over 3 years under a consecutive series of "temporary additional duty" orders. The claim was not allowed because circumstances indicated that the assignment was permanent and the Commandant of the Marine Corps declined to approve the assignment as temporary within the purview of regulations allowing for per diem payments.
