An Air Force officer claimed additional travel and transportation allowances incident to his transfer from an overseas duty station to his new station in the United States. GAO held that: (1) the claimant was entitled to an allowance for travel between his designated port of debarkation and his new duty station; and (2) Air Force travel regulations barred reimbursement of the claimant's additional expenses to travel to a third location to pick up two personal automobiles and transport them to his new duty station. Accordingly, the claim for additional allowances was denied.
