An Air Force member appealed a settlement disallowing a claim for reimbursement for shipment of excess baggage, contending that he was not liable because his wife was given erroneous information. The member was not entitled to have the goods shipped at government expense, and the government is not responsible for the actions of its agents. The claim regarding reliance on erroneous advice is not justified under the Meritorious Claims Act.
