    2.5 days given per month. Most of the time, weekends are counted when spending leave so plan accordingly. You can have a max of 60 days carried over by 1 October of each year unless authorized to go over that limit. You can sell back up to 60 days of unspent leave when separating or retiring. Nearly every holiday is celebrated, most of the time there is also a half-day preceding the actual holiday. Some local commands grant additional time off for specific events. While on operational command, most holidays are not days off. Duty is a rotational shift work schedule which means you work on what could otherwise be a holiday.

    2.5 vacation days a month, however very difficult to get time off approved.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Naval Officer in Washington, District of Columbia

    Accrue 2.5 days of leave per month. Tough to use when on sea duty, but stored up it comes in handy on shore duty.

    Can be very difficult to coordinate, and many commands are unwilling to grant it until just before the leave period. This does not make buying plane tickets very relaxing.
