A former Navy member claimed reimbursement for pay and allowances he earned between his disenrollment from the Baccalaureate Degree Completion Program and the beginning of basic training. GAO held that since the claimant retained his active duty status as an enlisted member, he was entitled to pay and allowances while awaiting transfer orders. Accordingly, the claim was allowed.
