depends on the mission.
I have monday off
for the most part, yes.
Then you get no days off
we get just about every holiday off, unless we are deployed.
ive had duty for 75% of the holidays since ive been here bad luck
im an MP, i dont get holidays off or special days.
How does that work for you guys anyways?
Do you guys rotate or something?
I'm in a watch rotation year round so unless I'm on leave or I just happen to be off, no.
My the husband... They have weekend duty.. whoever has weekend duty at the time of the holiday they have to work through the holiday.
For Christmas and Thanksgiving.. You work one or the other. usally never both.
While the husband was deployed. He had to work through all holidays.
I get the occasional holiday off. I havn't had weekend duty in a year and a half. I have it next weekend. Oh well.
A friend of mine got a monday off to watch the superbowl since they were 15 hours ahead of Houston time. That sounded promising
We get a "comp" day for working holidays, because my mission doesnt give a shit.......but getting that comp day seems like it takes an act of congress
We get comp days for working weekends but we have the week before and the week after to take it before it's gone
