There's no way to know his graduation date until he actually gets to BC. but most often than not it's eight weeks. and normally No they don't get leave during A school, it just really all depends, not knowing his rate or anything.
Sometimes they can get three or four days of leave approved for Thanksgiving... but you really don't want them to take that, you want them to save their leave days for Christmas stand down when the schools do close. Or you want them to be able to come home after A school. Choose wisely. They earn 2.5 days of leave each month. Liberty is normal time off, but they have to stay within a certain number of miles of the base, even over long weekends.
Thank you so much, this is all new to me.....good advise
