“When at all possible, our hope is to grant men of
the first shipping wave eligible for furloughs enough de
lay en route to their next station to give them seven days
at home,” Lt. Col. Russell D. Turrill, director of personnel,
said this week. The declaration was made to clarify the
furlough situation of those men who, because of training
or medical requirements, will not have sufficient time to go
home before being reported
available on March 20.
