The Commanding Officer generally grants periods of special liberty during the semester breaks as well. MECEP’s will need approval from MOI/AMOI and STA-21’s will have to place a leave chit with the STA-21 advisor. On weekends, if you travel farther than 300 miles from the unit, you are required to take leave.


This is conducted twice a year, and active duty standards still apply.
