A member of the Air Force who was medically evacuated from Chile to the United States for hospitalization and treatment and who was accompanied by his wife and daughters claimed "extraordinary" living expenses for housing, clothing, food, and other needs. The member was paid per diem while in a temporary duty status at the hospital and basic allowance for quarters after his permanent assignment there. There was no authority for the payment of the "extraordinary" expenses claimed.
