    March leave? DND down time?

    If there is "down time" then there is "down time". You will be told in clear direction what will be going on. I would ask the students around you first before asking an instructor.

    AVOTP to Nav Comm -- Postings

    I heard they are pretty good with that, just never had the opportunity to talk to someone on either coasts and get some sort of idea. Of course I won't go off anything until that paper is in my hand. Also to the other note, I am in no way bashing the Army. I love being in it and I couldn't ask...
