A retired Army member requested reconsideration of the disallowance of his claim for reimbursement, on a mileage basis, for personal and dependent travel to his home of selection incident to his retirement. He was not entitled to the travel allowances since the travel was completed more than a year after termination of his active duty and he did not come within the exceptions for extending the 1-year limitation. However, he was entitled to a mileage allowance for travel to his home of record or the place he last entered on active duty whether or not he actually performed such travel.
