Rules to use rest and recuperation leave for
designated areas

Rest and recuperation is a chargeable leave
program that authorizes use of ordinary leave to allow soldiers leave away from
hostile fire and imminent danger areas.

The unit commander is the approval authority
for R&R leave.

DODFMR 7000.14-R provides areas designated as
special pay duty subject to hostile fire and imminent danger.

R&R periods are limited to one trip per
12-month period.

R&R leave may not be combined with other
absences.

Travel to and from R&R areas is provided on a
space-required basis.

Travel to and from R&R areas is not charged to
leave.

Chargeable leave begins the day after the
soldier arrives at the APOD.

Chargeable leave ends the day prior to the day
the soldier returns to the APOE.

Major commanders are authorized to request
establishment of R & R areas from HQDA (DAPE-MBB), WASH DC 20310-0512.

The Office of the Secretary of Defense must
approve R&R locations.

The following requirements must be met before
designation may be considered:

  1. Soldiers are in an area which qualifies for
    hostile fire and imminent danger pay. (DODFMR 7000.14-R provides hostile fire
    and imminent danger pay locations.)
  2. Soldiers are on an unaccompanied tour.
  3. Annual leave program is restricted due to
    military necessity.
  4. Official and unofficial travel is
    controlled.
