Burn Bag: When you’re only worthy of 20 of the 40 home leave days earned

Via Burn Bag:

“If leadership at one bigass consular post decides that ELOs can take no more than 20 days of home leave and cannot leave the standard 30 days before/after the estimated departure date from post, does HR flinch? Is this enough critical mass for AFSA to respond to our inquiries? My spouse has served his 24 months in a danger pay post but is only worthy of 20 of the 40 home leave days he has earned.”

  1. Good luck waiting on AFSA. Still waiting on “clarification” of Mission Mexico’s arbitrary 25-day HL max for outgoing personnel that’s also being applied to incoming.

  2. I fought this battle and lost. I had accumulated something like 120 days of home leave. When I came back from Bosnia I had no onward assignment and was looking. Found one in DRL but they needed to convert a position and it took time. I wanted to use unused HL but they would not allow more than 20 or 25. I later found out someone else had been authorized twice that much.

    Good thing for AFSA to look into.
