Apply for Vacation

Service members may request leave at any time. Approval will be at the discretion of the command, based upon a wide variety of factors including operational requirements. Some commands may have specified times when all or portions of the command can take leave at the same time. This is sometimes referred to as “block leave” and may happen before or after a deployment or during a holiday period. Commonly, block leave time is allowed during the summer and Christmas holidays, and before and after deployments.
