    Is it true that PSU units drill more then other units.  Is "One weekend a month, two weeks a year" an inaccurate statement for a PSU unit.

    The policy last year was 48 drills per year for most units but PSU's were allowed 60 drills per year. So, it's true that PSU's drill more than other units. With as many qualifications that you have to have, you will want to come in on other days to study, get stuff signed off on or have underway time completed. My PSU is more than willing to submit chits if we have enough people that want to come in during the week to get stuff done.

    However, I hear that they are dropping the 60 back down to 48 because not enough people are using their extra drills. Don't know if they'll reconsider but I don't see how people can get qualified or keep their quals if they aren't given the additional time (above my pay grade though so...).

    So far (since August), we've had 2 different 2 week ADT's and average 3-4 per year (instead of the normal 2 weeks per year only once). We've also had a couple times where we drill for 3 or 4 days instead of just one weekend.

    Hope this answers your question.....if not, just let me know and I'll try again.

    I'm with PSU 307 in Clearwater FL. Check with your employer to see if they have designated military days you can use when you're on orders for the weekend or during the week. At a PSU, everyone drills on the same weekend so it's not something you can get around. If you were at a station or sector, you could pick the days you want to drill even if it's during the week (and they don't even have to be consecutive days either). Just something to think about.
