Category 3 consists of persons who served in a war theater while war was declared by Congress or were eligible for hostile fire special pay under section 310 or title  37,  United  States  Code;  persons   who   were discharged or released from service in the armed forces under  honorable  conditions;  and  persons  who  are determined  under  rules  prescribed  by  the  Retirement Home Board to be incapable of earning a livelihood because of injuries, disease, or disability. Category  4  consists  of  persons  who  served  in  a women’s  component  of  the  armed  forces  before enactment of the Women’s Armed Services Act of 1948, and  persons  who  are  determined  under  rules  prescribed by  the  Retirement  Home  Board  to  be  eligible  for admission   because   of   compelling   personal circumstances. Coast  Guard  veterans  who  had  service  during wartime while the Coast Guard was operated as part of the Navy are also eligible for admission. The  eligibility  of  active-status  reservists  for residency  at  the  Naval  Home  falls  into  category  3. Active duty is defined, in part, as full-time duty in the active  military  service  of  the  United  States.  Such full-time  duty  includes  the  annual  training  (AT) (formerly  ACDUTRA)  that  military  reservists  must fulfill.  It  does  not,  however,  include  Reserve inactive-duty  training  that  is  commonly  known  as Reserve drills, as well as the years spent as a drilling reservist; the key is active duty time only. FEES PAID BY RESIDENTS The  Naval  Home  collects  from  each  resident  a monthly fee for residency. The fee is a percentage of federal  payment  made  to  a  resident.  A  person  who becomes  a  resident  of  the  Naval  Home  must  pay  a monthly  fee  that  is  equal  to  25  percent  of  federal payments made to the resident. Although  residents  must  be  self-sufficient,  mentally and physically, at time of admission, they are provided for by the Naval Home thereafter either in the Home’s limited  medical  care  facility  or,  if  more  extensive  care or treatment is required, at the nearby Keesler Air Force Base  or  the  Department  of  Veterans  Affairs  Hospital  in Biloxi,  Mississippi  (if  eligible  and  when  available).  An active duty operated dental clinic is also available at the Naval  Home.  Naval  Home  residents  are  solely responsible for any medical care required beyond the capability of the Home. Enlisted  personnel,  chief  warrant  officers,  and limited duty officers contribute a portion of their pay each month to the Naval Home. The amount contributed is shown in the Leave and Earning Statement (LES) as a Navy Home assessment deduction. This amount is automatically deducted by the Defense Finance and Accounting  Service  (DFAS)  -  Cleveland  Center, Cleveland,  Ohio. FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR MEDICAL  CARE There is no charge for medical care given at the Naval Home medical care facility by staff medical or dental personnel. Residents pay for care received from other medical facilities. Residents maintain medical insurance to cover medical care if military or veteran’s medical facilities are not available. In addition to medical care, the Naval Home also provides  residents  with  a  private  room,  board, barbershop and beauty shop, movie theater, exercise room, swimming pool, library, hobby shop, and other recreational  facilities. Additional  information  and  applications  for admission may be obtained by writing the Director, United States Naval Home, 1800 Beach Drive, GulfPort, Mississippi  39507-1597. CONFERENCES Conferences  are  scheduled  in  many  locations  and cover a variety of subjects. They provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and information that could not readily be  done  through  other  means.  Conferences  require careful planning to make sure all subjects that need to be  addressed  are  addressed.  Conferences  are  not appropriate if the subject matter can be sent by directive, information  bulletin,  or  telephone  at  a  fraction  of  the cost  of  a  conference  without  significant  loss  in effectiveness. The term  conferences  includes  all  conferences, meetings,  seminars,  workshops,  and  other  similar gatherings scheduled on a regular, periodic, or one-time basis. OBJECTIVES The objectives of controlling conference scheduling is the conservation of TAD funds and compliance with applicable  security  and  legal  requirements.  Commands or  personnel  arranging  conferences  must  weigh  all 6-8
