SUBJ: ORDERS TYPES FOR COURSES OF INSTRUCTION OF LESS THAN 20 WEEKS
A. Coast Guard Supplement to the Joint Travel Regulations (CGS-JTR),
1. This ALCOAST announces changes to REF (A) to further the Coast
Guard's commitment to providing stability for Coast Guard members
and their families in support of a mission-ready total workforce.
2. Section 032201.C. of REF (A) is replaced with: "TDY Entitlements.
All members with dependents will be issued this type of order for
courses of instruction of less than 20 weeks, including to OCS and
applicable class "A" and "C" schools. All members who are married to
another service member, have no other dependents, and who reside
with their spouse upon issuance of orders are considered members
with dependents for purposes of this type of order. A member
traveling under a TDY order must return to the old PDS prior to
departing to the new PDS upon completion of training. A member may
request PCS/TEMDUINS orders, through the chain of command, when the
dependents do not reside with the member, or when the dependents do
not wish to remain at the old PDS while the member undergoes
training." All subparagraphs of section 032201.C. remain the same.
3. All provisions in REF (A) not specifically addressed in
this ALCOAST remain unchanged. These changes will be incorporated
into the next revision of REF (A).
4. This message will be cancelled on 30 MAY 2023.
