You are absolutely correct.  I am not sure how I phrased it earlier (whether
I said officers or Royalty).  Travel expenses incurred by officers of the
corporation while executing their jobs are reimbursable.  I am not sure 
(from the IRS' perspective) who gets to designate which posts are "officers
of the corporation".  I would suspect that that should be up to the BoD.  
If that is the case, then the current system is OK as long the appropriate 
procedures accounting are followed.
