The member will be required to reimburse the Navy for such  transportation. The  member  may  be  given  cash  to  purchase transportation, meals, and necessary transportation between  terminals  or  installations.  This  will  be  paid  on a Travel Voucher, DD Form 1351. The appropriation to be charged will be based on whether or not prior orders  were  issued. Prior  Orders  Issued When  prior  orders  have  been  issued,  we  are normally referring to those personnel traveling between permanent or temporary duty stations. The accounting data to be charged will be based on whether the member was  previously  issued  transportation  or  the  cash equivalent. N O     P R E V I O U S L Y     I S S U E D TRANSPORTATION.—   If  the  member  was  not previous] y issued transportation or the cash equivalent, these may be furnished and charged to the accounting data shown on the member’s orders. In this case, no checkage of the member’s pay is necessary. P  R  E  V  I  O  U  S  L  Y I  S  S  U  E  D TRANSPORTATION.—  On the other hand, when transportation (or the cash equivalent) was previously furnished and the traveler is now stranded without funds, reimbursement must be made to the government. The appropriation on the member’s orders will still be charged for any transportation furnished but will be collected by an offsetting checkage from the member’s pay account made by a Pay Adjustment Authorization, DD Form 139. Similar procedures are required when a member has lost his or her ticket or has been separated from his or her transportation. Again,  transportation  will  be furnished  subject  to  checkage  from  the  member’s  pay account using a DD Form 139. However, a member may submit  a  claim  for  a  refired  of  any  portion  of  the transportation for which the Navy receives a refund from the carrier on the original transportation furnished. No Prior Orders Involved When   no   prior   orders   were   involved,   all transportation or funds provided will be charged to the appropriation  to  which  the  member’s  regular  pay  and allowances are charged. The member’s pay account will be checked using a DD Form 139 to reimburse the appropriation. MEMBERS  DISCHARGED  UNDER  OTHER THAN HONORABLE CONDITIONS Generally, a member who is discharged under other than honorable conditions may be provided travel and transportation only by transportation in kind by the least expensive  mode  of  common  carrier  transportation available. When this mode of transportation is not available, the member may be paid an amount equal to the  cost  to  the  government  of  the  least  expensive common  carrier  transportation  that  would  have  been furnished. Travel entitlement in these cases may be affected  by  whether  or  not  the  member  was  under confinement. No  Confinement  Involved When no confinement is involved, the entitlement can  be  from  the  place  of  separation  either  to  the member’s home of record or to the place from which the member was called to active duty. When approved, entitlement can be even to an alternate place of the member’s  choosing,  provided  the  cost  does  not  exceed the cost to the member’s home of record or place from which he or she was called to active duty. Confinement  Involved When  confinement  is  involved,  travel  entitlement may depend on the status of the member and the facility in which he or she is confined. U.S. MILITARY FACILITY.—  A member who was  discharged  while  in  confinement  in  a  U.S.  military confinement facility qualities for travel entitlement upon parole or final release. The entitlement covers travel  from  the  confinement  facility  to  either  the member’s home of record, the place from which the member was called to active duty, or another place (upon approval that this would be no more costly to the government). NON-U.S.   MILITARY   FACILITIES.—   The travel  entitlement  is  different  for  former  members confined in other than U.S. military facilities. Overseas.— If the confinement facility is overseas, the travel entitlement is limited. Coverage begins at the place of the member’s release or from the nearest U.S. military  facility.  Coverage  ends  at  the  port  of debarkation in the country within which the member’s home of record or the place from which the member was called  to  active  duty  is  located.  A  port  of  debarkation located in a U.S. territory or possession is also included. 3-13
