Blocks 1-9 and 11 will be completed with required information. Block 15 (Itinerary) should begin with the departure for your TDY location. This block will be completed just as a complete voucher, however the last stop listed should be the TDY location. Underneath this block please insert “TDY in Place (dates you are claiming)” The dates inserted in this section should be the TDY accrual dates that you are claiming. Block 18 must reflect the reimbursable expenses (lodging, rental car, etc.) for the 30 day period being claimed. If a statement of nonavailability has been issued by a billeting office for use of commercial meals and/or lodging, it should also be annotated in block 18.
