GENERAL HEADQUARTERS UNITED STATES ARMY FORCES, PACIFIC APO 500 6 July 1946 AG 230.5 (6 Jul 46) OCP STAFF MEMORANDUM No. . . . . . . . . . 71 PORT CALL INCIDENT TO RETURN TRANSPORTATION FOR CIVILIAN EMPLOYEES 1. Reference is made to Civilian Personnel Policies and Regulations No. 11, 2 May 1946, subject: Return Transportation, Granting of Leave, and Reemployment of Civilians upon Expiration of Tour of Duty. 2. All employees, except those on temporary duty, being returned to their place of engagement for any cause are required to remain on duty until notification has been received from the port giving a definite date of departure. When such notification is received, employee will bring to the Office of Civilian Personnel a certified time report covering all work performed from last report up to hour and date he entered travel status. He will be considered as entering travel status as of time port call is received. Where port call is received more than three (3) days in advance of actual departure, employee will remain on duty except for such time as is necessary for packing and to obtain necessary clearances. 3. Under no circumstances will an employee be relieved from duty in his section prior to receipt of port call, except with the prior written approval of the Office of Civilian Personnel. Upon receipt of official orders, employee will be notified through his Personnel Coordinator to report to the Office of Civilian Personnel for orders and necessary instructions incident to obtaining transportation. He will be excused from duty a sufficient period of time to allow him to proceed to the Troop Movements Section, Eight Army, to make transportation arrangements. 4. A two-months’ written notice is required for all resignations to allow for recruitment of replacements. Resignations are reasons not acceptable to the employer and discharges for cause require return transportation costs to be borne by the employee. 5. The provisions of this staff memorandum will be brought to the attention of all civilian employees. BY COMMAND OF GENERAL MacARTHUR: PAUL J. MUELLER, MAJOR GENERAL, General Staff Corps, Chief of Staff. OFFICIAL: JOHN P. COOLEY, Colonel, AGD, Adjutant General
