    Good morning, TN! In the Navy, at least, there is a critical difference between TAD and TEMDU. TEMDU allows the receiving command to both conduct Article 13 proceedings, award punishment and to administratively separate a military member. I learned this the hard way when I was a Naval Station XO. USS SEABAT would get underway on deployment, sending broken or soon-to-separate or bad actors ordered to the NAVSTA. If they sent them with simple TAD orders, my hands were tied. Made for some terse messaging to and from the ship. I never knew the difference until then.

    Thank you for ensuring we have both listed; that is a major difference. TAD was already on the acronym list, so I added TEMDU. Please let me know there are any discrepancies.
