As you know, the Directorate is scheduled for two sessions on Spouse Day, 9 Dec. Some questions have been raised on dependents - especially the youngsters. Mr. Coffey reiterated the family visit guidelines pertaining to guests: Guests: Eligible guests are limited to employees, including contract employees and detailees from other agencies and the military services, currently assigned in the metropolitan area, and witting members of their families as follows: spouse, mature and responsible children, mother, father, and other close relatives living with the employee. A Deputy Director or higher authority may further restrict the above list of eligible guests as considered necessary for specific directorate visits. Last year we suggested - on children - that we were talking about high school age children. This may be too restrictive. What should be stressed is "mature and responsible children." This probably excludes third and fourth grades. The youngsters who come should be ones who will get some benefit from the visit and yet who will understand the sensitivity associated with the Agency. b.

We've just reviewed a dispute involving an officer who brought a set of golf clubs as accompanied baggage from his overseas post to his home leave point.
