An Air Force member appealed disallowance of his claim for reimbursement for his dependent son's travel from overseas to the United States for the purpose of returning to college. Although orders were issued stating that travel was in accordance with regulations and a delay in publishing the orders was not the member's fault, reimbursement was not allowed because such travel is authorized only if there is a lack of overseas educational facilities which arose after the dependent's arrival at the overseas station.
