The claimant appealed a decision which denied his claim for dislocation allowance. The member, whose dependents accompanied him to the vicinity of his future duty station for personal reasons prior to the issuance of permanent change of station orders, did not qualify for a dislocation allowance as a member "with dependents." However, if the member was not assigned to Government quarters after his transfer to the new duty station, he was entitled to a dislocation allowance as a member "without dependents."
