USE YOUR LEAVE WHEN YOU ACCRUE IT: Military leave will be scheduled and taken during the tour it was earned unless urgent mission circumstances do not afford the member the opportunity to do so.
AMENDED DUTY ORDERS: When orders are modified in AROWS with a pay-affecting amendment, the amendment must be promptly submitted by the member to the Reserve Pay Office.
Happy May! Another drill weekend and another major exercise.
I know everyone will be busy with training, however, I want to request that if you have not done so please take the climate assessment survey here (DEOCS). That is the computer survey I talked about at the Commander’s Call back in April. It is an essential part of the Commander’s Climate assessment. This is important because it offers each Airman a direct way to communicate with the commander.
Ultimately, the goal is to create and maintain an environment of fair treatment that is based solely on merit, fitness and capability.

FLAT RATE PER DIEM: Travelers who go TDY for more than 30 days at one location receive a flat rate per diem which is either 75% or 55% of full per diem depending on the total length of the TDY. Flat rate per diem does not apply if government quarters and meals are available and directed. Travelers who would have received full per diem in the past for more than 30 days at one location, will likely receive flat rate per diem instead. If you are traveling for TDY at one location for more than 30 days, ask Finance about flat rate per diem.
