    30 days of paid vacation, but leave requests can be denied at any time, and many commands have very negative policies for taking leave; sometimes in direct contradiction of Army Regulation.

    highest monthly accrual of vacation days allowed

    You are given 2.5 days at the beginning of every month. It’s a very nice vacation plan.

    The best thing is taking leave. It's paid and you can often depend on them not calling you on your time off.
