Schoettle, a teacher for approximately thirty years, appeals a final order denying his request for out-of-state service credit toward retirement for the school years 1963-64 and 1964-65, when he was employed at the George Seitz School, Kwajalein Atoll, the Marshall Islands. We reverse. During the years in question, the military conducted highly secret missile testing on the atoll. The George Seitz School was built by the United States Navy for dependent children of American military and civilian personnel on the atoll in support of the military operation. The school was the only school on the atoll and attendance was mandatory for all school-age dependents residing on the atoll. It was tuition-free to attendees and operated as the equivalent of a public school in the United States. All students and teachers were United States citizens and the children of native Marshall Islanders were not permitted to attend.
