the issuing officer will validate ID cards. The signature indicates that the data on the card has been verified at the time of preparation. The original signature with the person’s full name typed underneath must be placed on the card. Facsimile signatures may be used by naval recruit training centers only. The identification card must  also  be  signed  by  the  cardholder.  The  cardholder’s first name, middle initial, and last name must be typed below  the  signature. MEAL PASSES FOR ENLISTED PERSONNEL Enlisted members on active duty who are entitled to eat meals at government expense in a general mess ashore should be issued a Meal Pass, NAVSUP Form 1105.  The  meal  passes  are  preserialized  when  printed and are available in the colors of white, blue, pink, green, salmon, and yellow. Meal passes should be issued and controlled under instructions contained in the  Food Service   Management,   NAVSUP  P-486,  and  in  the MILPERSMAN, Article 2640140. The possession of a meal pass, an item of strict accountability, permits the holder to eat meals at government expense in any Navy general  mess. ACTIVITIES RESPONSIBLE FOR ISSUANCE The  PERSUPPDET  issues  and  controls  mea] passes. In the absence of a PERSUPPDET, the issue and control  of  meal  passes  is  handled  by  the  command performing personnel and administrative functions. Commands  operating  general  messes  establish  policy and guidelines governing issue and use of meal passes to make sure of consistency by all tenant units using the activity’s  general  messes.  The  host  command  specifies the colors to be used for each category of personnel and coordinates procedures for controlling the issue of meal passes  with  the  PERSUPPDET. When a meal pass is issued to an individual, that individual’s name and SSN is typed or printed opposite the pass number in the meal pass log and the recipient signs his or her name on the same line. Different color meal passes are used to identify Naval Reserve and other military personnel as follows: Naval  Reserve  (TAR)  enlisted  personnel  on active duty are assigned meal passes of a different color for purposes of general mess accounting. Naval  Reserve  enlisted  personnel  on  AT  and Ready Mariners (4X10s) are assigned meal passes of a different  color  than  Regular  Navy  and  TAR  personnel on  active  duty  and  are  recorded  and  accounted  for separately by the general mess. Different color meal passes also are assigned to enlisted   members   of   other   service   categories,   as determined by local needs. Enlisted personnel in a travel status and not receiving the meal portion or per diem may be issued a meal  pass  to  show  entitlement  to  rations-in-kind. Personnel in receipt of commuted rations maybe issued a different color meal pass so that a distinction can be made between this category of personnel and enlisted members on temporary additional duty (TAD) or temporary duty (TDY) and in receipt of a per diem allowance to facilitate sales of meal and to make sure proper  fees  are  collected. Meal passes arc not issued to the following: Personnel   receiving   basic   allowance   for subsistence at the rate based on the nonavailability of a government mess. Personnel  assigned  to  another  command  except as provided for previously. Inactive  Reserve  personnel.  Local  procedures must  be  developed  to  control  the  issue  of  meals  to inactive Reserve personnel entitled to rations-in-kind by other than the use of permanent meal passes. Meal passes must be permanently withdrawn from members  upon  detachment  or  authorization  for commuted rations. Temporary withdrawal for meal passes is the responsibility of the command to which the member  is  assigned.  Meal  passes  are  temporarily withdrawn from personnel going on leave, travel, TDY, or TAD. Meal passes must be surrendered when leave papers or orders are picked up. Personnel under orders may eat in the general mess by having their orders endorsed. Issue a new meal pass if the meal pass is lost. Make an entry in the meal pass log by lining through the previous entry that indicates that a member was issued a meal pass. Initial the entry if you are authorized to do so. Notify the food service officer by letter when a meal pass is lost. Destroy  permanently  recalled  meal  passes.  A column should be provided on the meal logbook for recording  the  date  and  disposition  of  meal  passes  when they tire canceled for any reason. The log then provides a ready reference of meal pass status. 1-16
