Some Airmen can carry over 'use or lose' leave

By | | September 23, 2004

Active-duty Airmen who were unable to take leave because they supported contingency operations may be allowed to accumulate more than the normal 60 days after the fiscal year ends.

Those affected can retain up to 120 days of leave until Sept. 30, 2005, said Air Force Personnel Center officials here.

"This program is meant to enable people to take leave they've earned," said Senior Master Sgt. Don Taylor, the center’s customer support operations superintendent.

The carry-over leave must be taken in 2005 so Airmen do not lose leave next year, he said.

For more information, Airmen can contact their local military personnel flight. (Courtesy of AFPC News Service)
