An Air Force reservist appealed a Claims Group denial of her claim for readjustment pay incident to her separation from active duty in the Air Force. GAO held that an Air Force Reserve member who was released from active duty was not entitled to readjustment pay where her separation from duty was voluntary in nature. A service member's separation from duty is voluntary when, on completion of a specific tour of duty, she volunteers for continued active duty contingent on assignment to a particular location or type of duty and is not accepted for such an assignment. Accordingly, her claim was denied.
