(b) Responsibility of major air commanders. Commanding generals of major air commands will issue instructions concerning the type of equipment to be displayed and provide for its availability.

sibility of having each major air activity prepare fixed and mobile exhibits of public interest.

§ 833.2 General. In accordance with the provisions of §§ 833.1 to 833.10, immediately upon official notification of the death, or presumptive finding of death, of any member from wounds or disease, not the result of his or her own misconduct, a death gratuity in an amount equal to six months' pay at the rate received by the deceased on the day of death, is payable to the eligible beneficiary of any such member. This includes compensation of every kind and character received at the date of death, as distinguished from allowances. [15 F. R. 6219, Sept. 16, 1950]

mation concerning such participation will be forwarded to the Director of Public Information, Office of the Secretary of the Air Force, Washington 25, D. C.

§ 833.3 Definitions of categories and entitlement. The entitlement of any beneficiary of any deceased Air Force member to the 6 months' death gratuity is dependent upon a combination of fac

tors, including the component of the member; the type of duty being performed at the time of death; the determination that death was due to disease or that injury was due to the duty status at the time of death; and the determination that death was, or was not, due to the misconduct of the deceased member.

(a) Members whose death creates entitlement to the 6 months' death gratuity pay are divided into three general categories:

(1) Category I. Members of the United States Air Force, without component, on extended active duty. (See sec. 301, 65 Stat. 328; 10 U. S. C. 1831.)

(2) Category II. Members of the Air Force Reserve and the Air National Guard on active duty for training, as authorized by competent authority where death is due to injury as distinguished from disease.

(3) Category III. Members reported missing, missing in action, interned, captured by an enemy, beleaguered or besieged who are subsequently determined to be dead or for whom presumptive finding of death has been determined by the Secretary of the Air Force.

(b) Even though a member is in one of the three categories listed in paragraph (a) of this section, the 6 months' death gratuity is not payable to any beneficiary under the circumstances shown in subparagraphs (1) and (2) of this paragraph.

(1) The 6 months' death gratuity is not payable if death is determined to have occurred as a result of the deceased's own misconduct. In this connection, unless the initial report of death indicates that no line of duty investigation is required, no action will be taken to process the death gratuity claim until AFHQ Form O-529, Casualty Report, is issued by the Casualty Branch, Director of Military Personnel, Headquarters USAF, which states that death occurred "In line of duty-Not misconduct."
