SUBJECT: UTD for MAP 132-14(R) – Travel from Primary Residence or PLEAD. SYNOPSIS: Authorizes travel and transportation allowances at the duty location based upon a Reserve Component (RC) member's primary residence and not the Place from which Entered (or Called) to Active Duty (PLEAD). If a member begins travel from a PLEAD other than the primary residence, travel allowances (to include per diem) are authorized when the primary residence is outside the commuting area of the duty location, even if the PLEAD is not. This will allow RC members to have a break between active duty orders, to include performing IDT, without the requirement to return home at the end of the first active duty period.
