A retired Air Force brigadier general appealed a GAO decision denying his request for waiver of the claim of the United States against him for pay and allowances paid to him for more than a month subsequent to his release from active duty. The retiree should have realized that the payment was erroneous, and the indebtedness which arose as a result was not waived.
