I know we are all overjoyed about our sailors coming home after PIR so let's get all of our questions answered here.
Recruits graduating Dec. 17 & 22 will be granted leave and will be able to travel home. Those graduating Dec. 17 will have their leave expire on Dec. 28. Recruits graduating Dec. 22 will be granted leave that will expire Jan. 2. Recruits are responsible for paying their own way from RTC to their home and then pay for their way from home to their next command for A School. Once they are at their next command, they may request to be reimbursed for part of the travel costs.

Traveling home the Sailors will be required to wear their uniforms because they have not phased in at A School. A letter will be given letting them know what is allowed and not allowed while on Leave. They cannot drive a car or consume alcoholic beverages while on Leave.
Our Sailors will not be allowed to bring their cars to A School.
This is a work in progress and I will try to answer questions as they become available to me.
Have a good day. Kathy
