Post-Deployment Leave Policy

R 261740Z AUG 70

TO NAVOP

UNCLAS //N01050//
POST-DEPLOYMENT LEAVE POLICY

1. I HAVE BEEN AWARE FOR SOME TIME THAT OUR SHIPS AND SQUADRONS DO NOT TAKE FULL ADVANTAGE OF LIBERALIZED LEAVE PERIODS.

2. EFFECTIVE ON RECEIPT I EXPECT INCREASED EMPHASIS UPON GRANTING LEAVE TO NOT LESS THAN 50 PERCENT OF PERSONNEL ASSIGNED TO SHIPS AND SQUADRONS DURING THE 30-DAY STAND-DOWN PERIOD FOLLOWING A DEPLOYMENT.

3. AS CIRCUMSTANCES PERMIT, COMMANDING OFFICERS OF SHIPS AND UNITS RETURNING FROM EXTENDED DEPLOYMENTS ARE FURTHER ENCOURAGED TO GRANT LEAVE IN EXCESS OF THE MINIMUM 50 PER CENT [sic] POLICY LEVEL ESTABLISHED HEREIN.
