I was on a mission in 2017 and our company deployed to Turkey. My LES’ from then say we received IDP and HDP-Location, and it was also tax free. I’m aware of what AR-670-1 says about Turkey not being a part of the countries you have to be in to receive it during my time there. I’ve seen multiple people over the years wearing a patch on their right shoulder from the same mission I went on. I also reached out to old S1s and my current S1 and they don’t have any answers for me.

This is on DFAS:

*Turkey – Personnel serving east of the 33.51 degrees East Longitude due to their service in direct support of military operations in the Arabian Peninsula CZ (note 3) (Note 3:The Arabian Peninsula CZ is the area designated by Executive Order 12744.)

Also this is what 670-1 says about Turkey:

(14) Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF): between 19 March 2003 and 31 August 2010, both dates inclusive, for Soldiers assigned to units participating in OIF. Soldiers must have been deployed in the USCENTCOM area of operations, or participated in OIF while deployed in Turkey, Israel, or on Aegis cruisers. Soldiers who served with the 1st Marine Division between 19 March 2003 and 21 April 2003 during combat operations in support of OIF are authorized to wear the 1st Marine Division SSI as their SSI–MOHC. Soldiers who were deployed in the area of operations on training exercises or in support of operations other than OIF are not authorized the SSI–MOHC, unless those exercises or operations became combat or support missions to OIF.

(15) Operation New Dawn (OND): between 1 September 2010 and 31 December 2011, both dates inclusive, for Soldiers assigned to units participating in OND.

Considering the above note, and the fact you received IDP and HDP-Location Pay, the answer is "YES".

The issue of cost is one that has prevented quite a number of students from obtaining the best management assignment help. We as https://essaywritinghelp.pro/dissertation-writing-services/ understand this and have gone ahead to regulate all our rates so that you are never faced with such a situation again. In fact, you can now get high-quality management assignment papers at rates that are quite cheap and within your budget range.
