ACTIVITIES RESPONSIBLE FOR ISSUING
Generally, PERSUPPDETs are responsible
for issuing and controlling meal passes. In the
absence of a PERSUPPDET, the issue and control
of meal passes is handled by the command
functions. Whether you are assigned to a
PERSUPPDET or a command performing
personnel support functions, you will likely be
responsible for some tasks involving meal passes.
Generally, the commands operating general
messes establish their own policies and guidelines
Figure 3-16.Meal Pass, NAVSUP Form 1105.
governing the issue and use of the meal passes
used at their facilities. This ensures consistency
among all tenant units using the activitys
general messes. The host command also specifies
the colors to be used for each category of
personnel and coordinates the procedures for
controlling the issue of meal passes with the
PERSUPPDET or the command performing
personnel and administrative functions.
Meal Pass Log
When a meal pass is issued to an individual,
that individuals name, rate, and SSN are typed
or printed opposite the pass number in the meal
pass log. The log should also contain the date of
issue, the expiration date, the members branch of
service, the old card number section, and a
section for the persons signature. Figure 3-17
shows you a sample meal pass log.
Meal Pass Card Colors
Different color meal passes are used to
identify. Naval Reserve and other military
personnel as follows:
TAR enlisted personnel on active duty are
assigned meal passes of a different color for
purposes of general mess accounting.
Naval Reserve enlisted personnel on annual
training (AT) and Ready Mariners (4ö10s) are
assigned meal passes of a different color than
Regular Navy and TAR personnel on active duty
and are recorded and accounted for separately by
the general mess.
