    You have 30 days' paid vacation per year, with the ability to accrue up to 60. You can sell days back in a pinch, but it's generally not worth it unless you're about to get out. Depending on your individual situation at your command/base/office, you might find difficulty in scheduling leave solely based on personal preference. So, take it with a grain of salt when you listen to the recruiter.

    2 days per month is great, Space A travel. Save your leave and get paid

    30 days a year is good but you are working a lot for that time off

    30 days of leave a year which weekends DO count towards that total. Leadership claims it can be taken when requested, but realistically if you're not prepared to battle for any "out of cycle" time off, don't request it.
