Welcome change! I was preparing to battle over RITA and my PCS (return rights) back to CONUS. HR used the "returning from overseas assignment for the purpose of separation from the service" even
though I was not separating, just transferring back to my original agency. Their explanation was that it was a separation from one component to another.
