    I just looked at my LES and I have 90 freaking days. :eek3:

    I carried over 67.5 days since I spent 2 out of 3.5 years at my last command deployed to the Gulf.

    Anyone else?

    I used all my leave, about 30 days, for terminal leave a few months ago.

    Take some leave nukka...

    Seriously. It's one thing to set up your leave to be in a use / lose 30 status (meaning you're using your 30 day use / lose accrual but to be in this situation is pretty bad and you're only setting yourself up to lose a lot of tax free leave. In your situation I'd seriously recommend taking off a week here and a week there. Take 5 days of leave (mon-fri) and just chill out at home. Go a few months then do it again. Nothing says that you can't take your 30 days a year. No need to keep that much on hand.

    BTW...I manage my leave to keep ~60 @ Oct 1st. This year I splurged and took 35 days over the year. I go by the Two Week / 1 wk 1 wk rule. Meaning 3 quarters out of the year I'm on leave. 2 of them for one week and take a big 2 week'er @ xmas or in the summer time depending on what is going on.

    I know. I got 7 this week and plan on taking a bunch over the holidays. I didn't plan on having this many days. Some commands you just can't take as much leave as you want. My last command was like that. Spent alot of time out to sea which is why I have 67.5 days of combat leave. My new command, my supervisor, divo and dept head spend alot of time TAD. When they leave I have to stick around. It sucks but I plan on using alot of leave in the coming months.

    Okay this is the opposite of my previous post...save some of that up nukka! Get up to 60 and you're guarenteed 30 days of leave a year.
