Current regulations, and it's pretty hard to find a reg that specifically says 'Officer X owes 5 years'. His personal circumstance is interpreted by the personnel folks, and the regulation is applied to determine what his commitment is.
If it's for what the two most common reasons are (mortgage or interviewing for a job), he needs a memorandum signed by his Commander or Personnel officer (in the Army we call that an Adjutant) and it's almost always good enough for people sweating him.
