Dear Ms. Riley,
Thank you for posting your request to History Hub!
A possible explanation of the abbreviations or acronyms on the pay statement is that there should have been a space between "AFD" and "GO." If so, the "AFD" probably indicated "Absence From Duty" with “GO” meaning General Order as in this example that was found online:
Remarks: No.A.W.O.L. No Absence from duty under..G.O.645 W.D. 1914
We hope that this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
Thank you. This explanation does fit the context of the document I'm studying.
