SOURCE DOCUMENT ADVISORY

Digital images were created from printed source
documents that, in many cases, were photocopies of
original materials held elsewhere. The quality of
these copies was often poor. Digital images reflect
the poor quality of the source documents.

Where possible images have been manipulated to
make them as readable as possible. In many cases
such manipulation was not possible. Where
available, the originals photocopied for publication
have been digitized and have been added,
separately, to this collection.

Searchable text generated from the digital images,
subsequently, is also poor. The researcher is
advised not to rely solely upon text-search in this
collection.

Items collected here were originally published by the
Florida National Guard, many as part of its SPECIAL

1. PETS. Pets will not be taken aboard Army Transports or War Shipping Ad-
ministration vessels allocated to the War Department. Unless prohibited by cus-
toms and quarantine regulations, they nay be shipped on commercial vessels under
complete control of the War Shipping Administration. Monkeys are classed as
restricted items. Permit for entry is required from the Department of Interior,
Permit Division, Field.and Wild Life Service, Chicago 54, Ill. Application
should be made prior to embarkation. Diseased monkeys will be held in quarantine
for an indefinite time or disposed of by quarantine officials. It is the policy
of this headquarters that pets will not be shipped.to the United States because
of difficulties in arranging shipping and in clearing them through customs and
quarantine officials at United States ports.

2, KEY PERSONNEL. Paragraph 14c(l), RR 1-1 (Changes No. 1) permits the
retention in Category IV Units of certain key personnel below the required
screening score whose services are required in the demobilization of the unit
upon return to the United States. This procedure was designed to assist port
authorities at the ports of debarkation in the speedy demobilization of units.
The retention of such personnel will be held to a minimum consistent with the
duties to be perfonned inasmuch- as this policy permits the return of low score
personnel ahead of personnel at, or above, the prescribed screening score.

3. PAYMENT OF TROOPS. Paragraph 28a(3), AFAESPAC Regulations 120-50 pro-
vides that all military personnel will be paid in full through the last day of
the month preceding their departure from the Assembly Area or Unit Station. It
is not contemplated that this action will be taken by units who depart immediately
prior to, or on, the last day of the month. Such units, however, that are
scheduled to leave at such time will prepare and have in readiness the necessary
payrolls in the.event the units do not depart as scheduled, so that the required
payment can be made.

Sb. Regienats, for the purpose of making personnel, rosters only, will
'be subdivided into four groups;' the first three to be the battalioris and the
fourth group'to include'all of the special units' Each of these four sub-group

a. The number one-copy of stencil in the possession of .the unit
will be.cosrecte. at time' of embarkation to reflect the personnel actually
embarked, and any other 'necessary, changes.iThis can be' accomplished by use
of correction fluid and typing the correction o~h the stencil, !'Where opera-
tional necessity prevents the typing of additions.on the stencil, such
additions may be typed on a separate (single) stencil to accompany the origi-
nal stencil, When' all corrections' have bedn made, the statement "corrected
as of embarkation" will be typed on each stencil which can then be used to
reproduce the nu(ibrof corrected copies required-locally and to. provide copies
indicated in paragraphs b and e below. Each stencil will then be placed in
a self-cleanihg file folder. Each fclder will be appropriately marked to
identify the stencil which it contains. This may be accomplished by running
the folder through the mimeograph machine before the stencil is removed.

b. Within 24 hours after embarkation, a.copy of the' Movement
Orders and.the Parsonnel Roster, produced from the number one' stencil correct-
ed as of embarkation, with Letter of Transmittal, will be forwarded by air

S(2) The United States Government has taken certain measures to
prevent the imporation of cultural material which has been taken from/the :
people of occupied' countries against their will .During the war, the contents
of many places of worship, religious institutions, museums, galleries 'libraries,
archives and places of cultural importance, both public and private, have been
widely scattered. Irreplaceable art objects and documents from.such sources
are occasionally sold by unauthorized persons and may be innocently acquired
by American soldiers." The importation of theoe, articles by military personnel,
as well as 'civilians .is prohibited without the license. referred:to in:para-
graph (5) above..

S (3) The definition's given in Treasury Department regulations are
necessarily very brad in order to cover the major categories of artistic. .'
Subjects vjhich might have been looted by the enemy. These .definitions must be
interpreted by un-ited States Army inspecting officers in the iiht'of the pur--
pose sought'to be accomplished as outlined above., The main, test for listing
the articles.as restricted articles should be whether the articles have the
distinction :6r rarity usually characteristic of those contained,in valuable art
collections,; For example. ordinary trade shipments of-,jewelry, pottery, rugs,
etc., may be worth $5,000. or more but because of their purely commercial nature
no license for their release should be required and therefore. they should not
be listed as restricted articles, On the .other hand,: certain manuscripts,
Drawings, etc., may be wrth less than $5,000 but because of their rarity or
distinction a license should .be required for their release and they should
Accordingly be listed as:restricted articles. : '

shipment number. Reception Station Groups and Separation Center Groups will
not be considered as units.

p. Unit Station: The station at which a unit is physically located
at the time it receives orders for preparation and movement to the Assembly
Area, directly to a Staging Area or to a Port.

q. Warning Order: Any official advance notice of impending movement,
furnished units which have been committed for movement to another theater, or
to the U. S.

6. Application: This publication is an integral part of movement orders
for units,-groups and individuals returning to the U. S. and all instructions
contained herein are applicable unless specific exceptions are contained in
movement orders. In case of conflict between the movement order and current
instructions, including this publication, the provisions of the movement order
will govern.

7. Objectives: The objectives of the procedures prescribed in this publi-
cation are:

a. To insure that units, groups and individuals under orders for
movement to the U. S. are properly prepared for such movement.

b. To insure that unit equipment is properly processed and packed
to accompany troops, for storage, or for later shipment.

c. To insure that required records are maintained to show complete
and up-to-date status at all times.

d. To insure that units being mounted for occupation areas in
Japan and Korea are fully equipped and supplied in accordance with current
instructions.

Part II

Movement of Units by Water and Air Transpoltation

To Japan and Korea

8. Procedure.

a. -Preparation for overseas movement, and the staging and
mounting of all units, groups and individuals under command of Eq.
AFPAC, for movement to occupation areas in Japan and Korea are direct
responsibilities of APPAC and the Major Commands under its control.

b. AFWESPAC agencies will provide such supply, equipment and
services as requested by Arzy and FEAF forces scheduled for movement to
Korea and Japan within limits of availability,

c. Since the majority of factors and conditions involved
will, in each case, vary to a great degree, it is believed impractical
to establish an SOP for these movements. Movement orders issued in
these cases will, therefore, contain complete instructions as to strengths,
equipment, supplies, method and time of movement, and other information
necessary for orderly movement of units concerned.

Part III

Movement of Personnel and Units by Water Transportation to the
US (for demobilization).

Section 1. General Procedure.

9. Plan of Movement.

a. Units scheduled for demobilization will have low
ASR score personnel screened out, high ASR score personnel
from other units or sources transferred in, and be returned
to the US as units. However this headquarters may direct the
demobilization of certain units in this theater. Insofar as
possible, units should be reorganized to contain personnel
within a narrow ASR score bracket in order to aid in establish-
ing a priority for movement of the unit to the US. Where
necessary, instructions for transferring personnel into and
out of such units will be included in warning and movement
orders of the unit. Warning orders will contain the screening
score to be.used.

b. Category IV units may be returned to the US at an
overstrength up to 50%. All individuals in these units must
have an Adjusted Service Rating score eaual to or above the
critical score current at the time of movement of the unit or
must be eligible for early discharge upon arrival in the US.

c. Whenever practicable, units with concentrations
of high ASR score personnel will be processed at and moved
directly from present Unit Stations through the nearest port to
the US.

d. When it is impracticable for units to move from
present Unit Stations, they will be moved to Assembly Areas
designated in movement orders for preparation for movement.
4
e. After preparation for movement at Unit Stations or
at Assembly Areas units will move with MEE -quipment directly
to the Port or to Staging Areas on call of the Port Commander.

f. Throughout the above, control of movement will be
exerted through Movement Orders'issued by this Headquarters.

10. Warning Orders. For the purpose of initiating the
processes hereinafter prescribed, Warning Orders may be issued.
These orders will be issued through command channels and will
alert the unit for movement. Warning orders will normally con-
tain the following:

b. Personnel rosters for all units returning to the
US will be prepared on dual mineograph stencils. This will
produce in a single operation two identical stencils for each
roster. The personnel roster for each unit will be placed on
a separate dual stencil or a separate group of dual stencils.
For details as to use of the stencils, see appendix D.
c. To facilitate prompt disposition of personnel up-
on their arrival at portsin the US, the listing in personnel
rosters will be by separate groups, depending upon the separa-
tion centers in the US to which the personnel is destined. Each
such group will be listed on a separate dual stencil or set of
stencils. -This will permit reuse of the stencils at US ports
for production of separation Center group movement orders with-
out retyping vast amounts of personnel data. A sample personnel
roster is illustrated in Appendix E.
d. The address in the US to which the individual is
entitled transportation upon separation from the service will
be the basis of determining the group under which each indivi-
dual will be listed. The list of separation centers in the US
established for this purpose is indicated in Appendix F. In-
dividuals may be sent to the separation center nearest the US
port of debarkation rather than the separation center serving
the area to which the individuals are entitled transportation
in cases of an offer of employment or permanent change of ad-
dress at a location near the port or where rail transportation
at government expense will be reduced.

e. As personnel rosters are being prepared, the num-
ber one stencil will be used to produce the number of copies
which may be required by the unit for planning and movement
purposes. The number two stencil will not be used for produc-
ing copies of the roster.
f. Stencils will be retained and taken by the unit
to the port.

40. Disposition of Records and Final Personnel
Reports:
a. One copy of the stencil in the possession of
the unit (see paragraph 22 above) will be corrected by the
unit at time of embarkation to reflect the personnel actually
embarked, and any other necessary changes. This can be
accomplished by use of correction fluid and typing the
correction'on the stencil. Where operational necessity
prevents tihe typing of additions on the stencil, such
additions*may be typed on a separate (single) stencil to
accompany the original stencil. When all corrections have
been made, the statement "corrected as of embarkation" will
be typed on the stencil which can then be used to reproduce
the number of corrected copies required locally and to
provide copies indicated in paragraphs b and e below. Each
stencil will then be placed in a self-cleaning file folder.
Each folder will be appropriately marked to identify the
stencil which it contains. This may be accomplished by
running the folder through the mimeograph machine before the
stencil is removed.

b. Within 24 hours after embarkation, a copy of
the Movement Orders and the Personnel Roster, produced from
the stencil corrected as of embarkation, with Letter of
Transmittal, will be forwarded by the base commander by air
courier or airmail whichever will provide more rapid
delivery to The Adjutant General, Attention: Officers
Branch, (PO-A), Washington 25, D.C.

c. Not later than 24 hours after embarkation the
above stencils, corrected as of embarkation, will be
forwarded by the base commander by air courier or airmail
whichever will provide more rapid delivery, to the Command-
ing General of the United States Port at which debarkation
is scheduled.
d. The remaining stencils will be corrected at
time of embarkation to reflect personnel actually embarked
and other necessary changes. The statement "corrected as of
embarkation" will be typed thereon.

e. These stencils, two copies of the Personnel
Roster and two copies of Movement Orders will be given to
the Unit Commander, who will be instructed to retain them
in his personal possession so as to be readily available
when called for at the United States Port. During the
period aboard ship en route to the United States, the unit
commander will correct the stencils and copies of rosters to
agree With the Transport Commander's certified copies of the


RESTRICTED
25




120-50 RESTRICTED


Passenger List and to reflect such changes as may occur en
route. If a unit is carried on more than one vessel, that
portion of the stencils and copies of rosters covering the
personnel on each vessel will be carried and corrected by
the senior officers of the unit aboard. Reasonable care
must be exercised.in handling the stencils while en route.
Each stencil must be placed in a self-cleaning file folder.
If in proper condition, the file folders will be used at
United States Ports for forwarding the stencil to a
Separation Center. It is suggested that the stencils (in
file folders) be carried in a large manila envelope in
order to reduce to a minimum the amount of folding
required. The stencil will not be carried in hand or hold
baggage.
f. Since the stencils for Personnel Rosters will
be corrected as of embarkation, it is contemplated that
amendments will not be necessary; however, if circumstances
necessitate changes in rosters after personnel have embarked,
these changes will be prepared on a dual stencil, both
copies of which will be forwarded by air courier or airmail
to the Commanding General of the United States Port at which
debarkation is scheduled.

g. The port commander will insure that all
prescribed personnel records are available for personnel of
the unit embarked. Records of personnel not embarked will
be withdrawn and will be disposed of in accordance with
current instructions relating to the nature of.the
individual's absence (i.e., death, desertion, sick in
hospital, etc.)
h. For action with respect to final reports-of
personnel in AAF units, see paragraph 36a above.

Passenger lists will be checked at the gangplank as person-
nel embark.

44. Information on Procedure Aboard Ship: Port
Commanders will inform transport commanders prior to sail-
ing of the following requirements which must be met prior to
debarkation of personnel in the United States:

a. Within 24 hours before scheduled debarkation,
the ship surgeon will conduct a physical inspection of each
individual to be debarked for the detection of acute
communicable diseases and vermin infestation. Following the
inspection, a health certificate in the form contained in
Appendix 0 will be prepared and signed by the ship surgeon.
This health certificate is of paramount importance in
speeding up processing of personnel in the United States.
In this connection, attention is invited to Change 1 AR
55-435.

56. Preparation and Disposition of Movement Orders and
Personnel Rosters.
a. Preparation.
(1) Both the Movement Orders and Personnel
Roster for all Reception Station and Separation Center
Groups being returned to the United States will be prepared
on dual mimeograph stencils. For convenience these are,
referred to hereinafter as Stencil No. 1 and Stencil No. 2.
The Movement Orders for each Reception Station or Separation
Center Group will be placed on separate duplicate stencils
or a separate group of duplicate stencils. Likewise, the
Personnel Roster for each group will be placed on a separate
duplicate stencil or a separate group of duplicate stencils.
(2) The basis for determining the group under
which each individual Will be listed will be the address in
the United States to which the individual is entitled
transportation upon separation (for Separation Center Groups)
and the address in the United States at which the individual
desires recuperation (for Reception Station Groups). See
paragraph 22d above for policy in connection with changes of
addresses.

(3) As Movement Orders and Personnel Roster
are being prepared, the No. 1 stencils will be used to
produce the number of copies which may be required locally
for planning purposes and to provide the copies required for
attachment to Forms 66-4 under paragraph 57 below.

(4) Each No. 1 stencil will then be placed in
a self-cleaning file folder and taken to,the Port Area by
the group. Similarly, the No. 2 stencil will be retained by
the group and taken to the Port Area, but will not be used
to produce copies of rosters.
b. Two copies of group personnel rosters will be
forwarded to Hq. AFWESPAC and two copies to the major
command indicated in paragraph 48 above.
57. Personnel Records. The list of personnel records

and the procedures outlined in paragraph 23 above will
apply in every detail to records to be returned with
personnel of Reception Station and Separation Center Groups

58. Preparation and Disposition of Form 66-4.
(Reception Station Groups of surplus personnel only; not
applicable to AAF officers..)
a. In order to permit advance planning for
determination of essentiality of officers of Reception
Station groups returning to the United States and for their
expeditious disposition after arrival threat, the
Disposition Center commander will cause to be forwarded to
The Adjutant General, Attention: Officers Branch (PO-A),
Washington 25, D.C., a certified copy of the WD Form 66-1,
66-2, or 66-3, prepared on WD AGO Form 66-4, for each
officer being returned in Reception Station Groups (see
Readjustment Regulations 1-5.)
b. These copies will be dispatched by air courier:
or air mail whichever provides more rapid delivery, within
24 hours after the officer's departure from this theater.
The forms will be accompanied by a letter of transmittal
which will indicate the number of Forms 66-4 inclosed and
the date of departure of the officers from this theater. A
copy of the Movement Orders of the group and a complete
personnel roster (all groups) will be included. All papers
will be securely fastened in such a manner as to insure
their receipt by The Adjutant General simultaneously. Prio:
to dispatch a careful check will be made to insure that a
copy of Form 66-4 is provided for each officer listed in th
