The measure authorizes the payment of an estimated 2,700,000,000 in cash and five-year bonds to noncommissioned, members of the armed-forces who did not receive all of the furlough time to which th.oy were'entitled. It was signed by Mr. Truman at a mid-day While House ceremony. Four steps t,o bo followed by discharged veterans in applying for terminal leave pay were outlined officially today. The steps as listed by the Treas- f" - War and Navy Departments: J. Obtain from any postoffico a form entitled "claim .for settlement, unused leave," and an accompanying instruction sheet. 2, Fill out this form. Help may be obtained at any of 3,000-odd veterans community information or advisory centers, or at the office of any state or county veterans service officer. 3. Swear to the statements made in the forfn before a notary public or other authorized civil ' officer. Most community information or advisory centers will provide the service free. 4? Mail .the completed form, to- getjier with'a discharge certificate or'.certificate of service, to the appropriate army, navy, marine corps or coast guard paying offi- cpr. listed on the reverse side of the claim-form, Payment will be made by mail "as soon as possible" and the supporting documents returned. The legislation, which also will equalize leave benefits of officers and enlisted men still on active duty, calls for payment of an estimated $2,700,000,000 in cash and interest-bearing five year bonds to about 15,000,000 former members of the army, navy, marines and coast guard. It is the first major revision of leave policies in the armed forces in 70 years.
