How often do you get to come home while in the Army?
Hello, i was just curious, how often do you get to come home to visit your family and for how long? And i mean when you are not deployed overseas, because i know you cannot come home then. Is it just basically major holidays or what? From what i hear you get 2.5 days per month is this true?, so say if i worked 2 months, i would have 5 days leave. So could i leave mon-fri, and come back sunday since you dont work weekends?
Additional Details
sorry forgot to also ask this. Does the leave time start when you get to basic, AIT, or when you get to your first real job place? thanks

Yes it is true that you do get 2.5 days of leave a month. I am not positive when it starts accruing though whether its when you start basic or when you go to your first duty station. They are picky sometimes with leave like if too many people request the same time period off and what not. You also have the opportunity to put in for weekend passes which means you can go home for the weekend and see your family. A pass is usually only necessary when you are going to be 250 miles or more away from the bases. You will get 3 and 4 day weekends occasionally and those are always good times to put in for a pass. And a pass doesn't count towards your accrued leave days. The military will let you know when you can put in for leave, to my understanding you cant use it when ever you want.

Yes, you earn 2.5 days per month. Leave time starts accruing from day one when you get to BCT. Some places require that you have 30 days of saved leave before you are allowed to take leave (Korea, Germany, Overseas assignments) Most places do what is called block leave during the holidays and it's about 14-20 days long depending on where you are stationed. Some places only allow leave during block leave times and others will allow you to take leave when ever you choose as long as it doesn't effect training or mission. You have to get leave approved ahead of time by your command. What the process is for your duty station/unit should be explained to you when you get there.

Tankers hit the nail on the head

Tankers gave a great answer; I also wanted to mention that weekends count toward leave time, unless the day you end leave falls on a non-duty day (which then does not count.) So if you took leave starting on Monday and came back on Sunday, that would be six days leave deducted.
