A decision was requested as to whether Joint Travel Regulations may be amended to authorize travel entitlements from a member's new permanent station to his former permanent station and return under certain circumstances. Where a member is assigned to temporary duty and the temporary duty station becomes his permanent station, or where a member is assigned to a vessel and while the vessel is deployed from the home port the port of the vessel is changed, the members' round-trip travel to the old permanent station or old home port should be considered travel incident to the permanent change of station. Therefore, round-trip travel of the member to the former permanent station or home port may be reimbursed.
