    I don't take leave and have about 60 days saved up. I've heard about people selling leave before but I can't really find any solid information about it. Anyone have any experience with this? I'm in a slight cash crunch right now

    i looked into it once a few years ago.
    I did the math and i came up with, you make more money if you actually take the leave(when u consider BAH Base pay and all the other beenies u get)
    AND i got to leave the shit hole unit i was with at the time

    never sell back leave, always take it. You make way more money that way.

    Mike, take leave man. DO IT. Take leave and go do something. Take your girlfriend to Disney World or the beach or a state park.

    Go to your S-1 or admin and sell your shit then. Aren't you cutting it close anyways? You're gonna have to take it or sell it.

    just take the leave. from what i understand, you can only sell leave once (maybe twice) in your career.

    i hear a lot of conflicting information about it. Like you can only do it at reenlistment or ETS, or you can only do it once, or you can't do it at all, so on, so forth
