The Coast Guard requested a decision regarding a member's claim for a flat per diem for additional travel time pursuant to his transfer to a new duty station and his wife's hospitalization en route. GAO held that the member's new commanding officer had the discretion to grant the additional travel time, since travel was delayed due to reasons beyond the member's control. Accordingly, the claim was allowed.
