Reimbursement was sought for a Navy member who used a taxi to get to his duty station. As a general rule, travel between residence and place of duty is not considered travel on official business, but rather is the personal responsibility of the member. That his "regularly scheduled duty hours" were outside normal duty hours did not alter the conclusion. The claim was denied.
