If in the immediate vicinity of a naval activity, such as recruiting station or naval station, advise them of your condition and status. You are advised that costs incident to hospitalization or medical treatment received at other than Federal medical activities (Army, Air Force, Public Health Service, or Veterans' Administration) may be defrayed by the Navy Department in EMERGENCY cases only.
7.In the event that conditions beyond your control indicate late return to the command to which you are ordered to report, obtain written evidence from transportation agency or others (physician, military or civil police, recruiting station, etc.) for consideration by your commanding officer.

Leave is computed as follows: The day of departure on leave, shall be counted as a day of duty, except when leave commences prior to the end of the normal workday; the day of return from leave shall be counted as a day of leave, except when such return is made at or before commencement of your normal workday in which case it shall be counted as a day of duty.
