Daily Allowed Rations
Rations-in-kind.  This  is  the  term  used  to  describe meals furnished to enlisted personal from the GM at government  expense. RATION   ENTITLEMENT.–   Regular  and Reserve enlisted personnel of the armed services, officer candidates,  cadets  of  the  armed  forces  academies  in  a duty  status,  and  prisoners  of  war  are  entitled  to rations-in-kind  at  government  expense  under  various appropriation  acts. Retired enlisted military personnel confined in a hospital  or  dispensary  are  entitled  to  rations-in-kind. Destitute  survivors  of  disasters,  refugees,  civilian evacuees, and American seamen may be fed without charge in Navy messes. Entitlement is determined and action taken to effect reimbursement by NAVFSSO as appropriate  from  the  data  furnished  in  the  certification required for this category of personnel. Rations   are   furnished   to   foreign   government personnel on a cash basis, except when the invitational travel orders authorize other means of reimbursement. Enlisted personnel in a travel status who are receiving per  diem  instead  of  subsistence  are  not  entitled  to rations-in-kind unless their orders are endorsed showing the  number  and  type  of  meals  authorized. Cash sales may be authorized to various types of personnel. Usually, approval of the CO is all that is required  and,  in  some  instances,  this  approval  can  be obtained  in  the  form  of  supply  department  instructions. Only those personnel entitled to rations-in-kind are authorized to eat without charge; all others must pay for each meal consumed. AFLOAT  PROCEDURES.–  On the first day of the month, the executive or personnel officer should advise  the  FSO  of  the  estimated  daily  number  of personnel entitled to be fed in the GM. The FSO should be told when any significant change to the number of personnel entitled to subsist occurs during the month. When  rations  for  foreign  or  other  personnel  are included, the FSO should be informed also. The FSO uses the daily expected number of rations allowed  to  accomplish  the  following: . Post the General Mess Control Record, NAVSUP Form 338, each day at sea. . Plan the quantities of food to be prepared on the following day based on the actual number of persons ex- pected to be fed using the current acceptability factors. . Prepare certifications as required and arrange to have them completed and signed before departure of personnel   requiring   certification.   The   FSO   signs certifications  when  signatures  of  persons  in  charge  of groups  cannot  be  obtained. During days at sea, ration credit should be taken for each  enlisted  member  on  board.  Ration  credit  also should be recorded daily on the NAVSUP Form 338 for all meals sold for cash. Days at sea includes the day of leaving and the day of arriving regardless of the time of departure  or  return. During in-port periods, ration credit should be taken only for the personnel actually fed. Any convenient, accurate  method  for  determining  this  number  is permissible; usually, a hand counter is used by the master-at-arms as personnel pass through the serving line.  Full  ration  credit  may  be  taken  in  port  while simulated  at-sea  exercises  are  being  held  and  all personnel  are  remaining  aboard  overnight. Ration  allowances  are  adjusted  to  compensate  for the change in the calendar day resulting from crossing the 180th meridian. When the time is set back 1 day in crossing from the west (Japan) to the east (United States), rations are credited for the extra day. When time is advanced 1 day in crossing from the east (United States) to the west (Japan), rations are not credited for the lost day. ASHORE PROCEDURES.–  To  provide  uniform and  equitable  procedures  in  accounting  and  estimating military feeding costs, the policy that such programs will be based upon actual food costs per person was established  by  the  Assistant  Secretary  of  Defense.  Such costs   are   essential   to   the   planning   of   budget requirements and for the development of absentee rates for  congressional  presentations.  The  development  of  per capita  consumption  costs  is  based  upon  the  actual number of persons fed in Navy GMs ashore. This is accomplished  by  the  signature  head  count  method whereby a daily count is made of all personnel fed at each  meal. Activities  with  GMs  physically  located  ashore include  the  following: .   All   shore   activities   except   naval   hospitals operating  hospital  messes l   All   mobile   construction   battalions   and detachments  eating  in  GMs  ashore . All fleet and force commands operating GMs l All cargo-handling battalions eating in GMs . All inactive service craft facilities 13-11
