The Assistant Deputy Chief of Staff, Comptroller, Langley Air Force Base, Virginia, requested an advance decision with regard to certain temporary duty allowances. Although a member of the Armed Forces may be charged leave when delays in travel result from actions of the member, the leave charge must be based on the constructive travel itinerary which could have been used but for the taking of leave. A member may not be penalized by denying him travel and transportation benefits to which he would otherwise be entitled simply because those travel expenses were incurred in days charged as leave.
