An Air Force Reserve member requested reconsideration of a settlement which disallowed his claim for an initial clothing monetary allowance incident to his service in the Air Force. The member, who was issued clothing to complete his initial clothing issue requirements upon his recall to extended active duty in 1968 and who did not turn in the clothing incident to his discharge from that duty for purposes of enlistment in the Regular Air Force in 1969, was not entitled to initial clothing monetary allowance. Reliance upon the erroneous advice of his superiors that he was so entitled did not afford a legal basis for entitlement to payment from appropriated funds since the United States is not liable for the erroneous advice of its officers or employees.
