For us to deny the overseas travel at that late time is most embarrassing from the standpoint of this office, and occasionally causes considerable personal inconvenience to the proposed traveler, which inconvenience could have been avoided if this office had been brought into the picture at an earlier date. 2.

Transfers between divisions in the Office of Operations e. Transfers to and between stations overseas 5.
