A retired military member requested reconsideration of the disallowance of his claim for dependent travel expenses incident to his retirement from active duty. The member was not entitled to reimbursement for the travel expenses incurred by his dependents since they traveled to his intended home of selection prior to any determination by the responsible headquarters to issue orders directing the member's retirement.
