Question How much leave time do Marines get?

I am asking because my little cousin is dating one, and while the guy seems very nice and super-respectful, it seems like he has *a lot* of leave.

I mean... he was just home for a month or so back in February-March, and then (I think) went to Camp Lejeune. Since going back, he's taken at least two long weekends during which he's had tome to travel all over the East Coast.

I'm not saying the dude doesn't deserve time off; I'd never say that about a Marine... but it just seems like this guy has more leave time than I've ever heard of a Marine getting and I am hoping (for my little cousin's sake) that there isn't anything fishy going on here.

That said, since I know we have some active and former Marines around, what's the deal with this? How much time should an enlisted Marine have to go all over the place like this guy seems able to do?

If its the same as some of the other branches of the military, its 30 days per year.

EDIT:
Confirmed(USMC website), 30 days paid vacation, per year.

I'm not a Marine, but a few of my friends are, and it really depends on what they are doing. My buddy who is training in Recon gets his weekends off, and a buddy of mine who, after finishing his first tour to iraq, also had 2 days off a week, and then was on 5 days. It really depends.. then again, I'm not a Marine, so I do not know the specifics.I also may be completely wrong..

He could just have a cool command
Im active Navy and I work 4 days for 12 hour shifts then have 4 days off.....he may have something similiar
just ask him what he does and what his schedule is....if he starts to peddle off some weird ass story maybe you should look into it....but at the same time I mean unless he is hurting your cousin I wouldnt worry too much about it. With our now weird depolyment schedules sometimes we are given "basket leave" where we just get to leave and if something happens then the leave is charged, but if you come back with no faults/occurances you didnt take leave....its illegal, but still is in practice

30 days per year, up to a maximum of 90 days. Any leave accumulated past 90 is use-it-or-lose-it.

You accrue 30 days of leave per year, but can carry over either 75 of 90 days. After that, it becomes "use or lose", and must be used before 1 October, otherwise you lose whatever days you have over 75 or 90.

If the guy has a lot of use or lose saved up, maybe his command is being generous with his time off.

My current total is something like 41 days and I plan on selling back 30 of them if I separate in October.

It's 75 days max on 1 October, if you separate or retire on Sept 30th, you could theoretically have 105 days of leave.

70.0

But who know when or if that policy will change. It doesn't matter how much leave you're allowed to accumulate, there will always be a problem with use-or-lose leave. Some people that are constantly busy, or have oppressive leadership will always have excess leave, and those of us, like myself, who work under more lax conditions simply don't take that much leave.

Is there any regulations on how you spend your accumulated leave or can you just not show up for 2 months?

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu


I never saw anything about the end of the 75 day max carryover.

Meh, unless they slow down the deployment rate drastically, that will be postponed.

I'm pretty sure that you need permission from higher up to take more than 30 days, which is one hell of a long time to be away, or sitting around the house. If you're overseas and take more than 30 days, you lose your Cost of Living Allowance.

At my base:

One guy....ONE....screwed up and his supervisor wasn't able to reach him while he was on a month of leave. The commander's response? To reduce the maximum amount of leave that can be taken at one time to two weeks. That's total BS!

I love my job.

We had that policy on my last ship....no more than 14 days of leave....even Male Baby leave (the new required leave) wasnt being granted....then the CO left and all that went out the window...if the Division/Workcenter/Duty Section could afford you being gone for the entirty of your leave balance, you got to take it

for the Navy we have a Form....everything is a form...lol
NAVCOMPT FORM 3065 : Leave request
It has to be filled out, submitted to your immediate chain of command, and command dependant your duty section(s), then it is routed to the Command chain of command (if needed to the commanding officer) and if approved you are granted to be on leave for the period requested.

When I was in the Corp we had a deal set.
24 hours 100 miles
48 hours 250 miles
72 hours 400 miles
96 hours 600 miles
This was all non-leave time and did not count against my 30 days. I was given permission to fly from California to Texas a few times on 4 days weekends. Sometimes I would get off at noon on Wednesday, fly to Houston on stand by out of San Diego and be at my GF's home by 8:00pm Central time. I would catch an early flight back to San Diego and be back at work by 9:00am Monday morning. Honestly I was working the system but it can be done effectively. I figured after I was injured and rebuilt a few times it was ok and my command was cool with it. I was late once but called in and they were ok. A chest of decent medals did not hurt.

Thanks guys. So it seems like it's more dependent on how his command is, versus his MOS or whatever...

lulz. Back to the Future anyone??

Dont know about other services but im sure there about the same. Im AF and we get 30 days a year or 2.5 days a month. Depending on your job, depends on what days you are off and how much leave you can take. I get wkends off so I am able to use 5 days to get a whole week off. By secondary leave I think you might be thinking of "recon" time. Depending on how many months you were deployed, depends on how many free days of leave you get. I went for 4 months and when I came back i got 14 days or 2 weeks off for free. Then I could take more time off but it counted towards my leave balance.
