of the total reimbursements estimated to be received in 1966.

4. Foreign air transportation: Transportation of military mail (Department of Defense). --The Department of Defense pays for the overseas portion of the transportation of mail moving to and from military post offices in foreign countries. Because it is set up to do so, the Post Office Department makes the arrangements with and pays the bills of commercial air carriers who haul this mail overseas. The Department of Defense makes a reimbursement to the Transportation appropriation for the costs thus incurred by the Post Office Department. The trend in volume growth experienced during the past several years is expected to continue through 1966 although CAB Order E-21514 effective October 1, 1964, decreased the ton-mile rate for this type of service resulting in a decrease in the reimbursement in 1965 and 1966.

5. Building occupancy: Sale of sites and related costs to prospective lessors. This program provides for purchase of sites for construction of leased postal facilities and payments of architect-engineering fees for the design of such buildings. The sites are resold to successful bidders upon award of the agreement to lease, and the proceeds reimbursed to the Facilities appropriation. The amount estimated for 1966 results from the larger value of awards which will be made in 1966 as compared with 1965.
