THE HIGH STATE OF READINESS MAINTAINED BY THE NAVY, REQUIRING LONG WORKING HOURS AND FAMILY SEPARATIONS, HAS BEEN MADE POSSIBLE ONLY BY THE CONSISTENT AND ADMIRABLE DEVOTION TO DUTY ON THE PART OF ALL HANDS. THE URGENCY OF MANY OPERATIONAL COMMITMENTS HAS LEFT LITTLE FREE TIME FOR REST AND RELAXATION, I.E., LEAVE AND LIBERTY, BOTH INHERENTLY CRITICAL MORALE FACTORS. THE GRANTING OF LIBERTY, AS DEFINED IN REFERENCES (A) AND (B), IS A PREROGATIVE OF COMMANDING OFFICERS. HOWEVER, NO GUIDLEINES ARE PRESENTLY PROVIDED FOR GRANTING COMPENSATORY TIME OFF/LIBERTY FOLLOWING HOLIDAY DUTY PERIODS. THE FOLLOWING ARE LEGAL PUBLIC HOLIDAYS AND FALL UNDER THE PURVIEW OF THIS NAVOP:

MEMORIAL DAY
INDEPENDENCE DAY
LABOR DAY
COLUMBUS DAY (COMMENCING CALENDAR YEAR 1971)
VETERANS DAY
THANKSGIVING DAY
CHRISTMAS DAY

2. WHEN THE OPERATIONAL SITUATION PERMITS, AS DETERMINED BY THE COMMANDING OFFICER, PERSONNEL SHALL NORMALLY BE GRANTED COMPENSATORY TIME OFF FOLLOWING IN PORT DUTY ON A HOLIDAY. THIS TIME OFF SHALL BE ON A ONE FOR ONE BASIS. ONE WORKING DAY OFF FOR EACH DAY OF HOLIDAY DUTY. HOWEVER, WHEN ONE OF THE ABOVE HOLIDAYS FALLS ON A SATURDAY OR SUNDAY AND THE PRECEDING FRIDAY OR FOLLOWING MONDAY IS OBSERVED AS A HOLIDAY, COMPENSATORY TIME OFF SHALL BE GRANTED FOR BOTH THE HOLIDAY AND THE FRIDAY OR MONDAY OBSERVED AS A HOLIDAY.
