Does anybody know if you transfer from another service if you have the option of selling your leave back? Not sure about the rules since you’re going DOD to DHS, and the goal would be to join the Coast Guard without a break in service. Initially I was hoping to transfer my leave days with me, but honestly, I just don’t take leave very often and cashing out at my current payrate given the paycut and potential pay issues starting out, it could be very helpful.
Additionally, I think I found my answer in the CG pay manual, but wanted to see if anybody had experience. I was not ROTC, but the program I did allowed me to go to OCS during my college summers. My PEBD started when I went to OCS, but I didn’t finish college for another 3 yrs. Will I get to keep my original PEBD, or will I have to use my original commissioning date?
