my vacation ends on Jan 1 (back on the 2nd) so I’d just need to plan accordingly. Personally I’d prefer a slightly earlier schedule, but I can always just come when I can and stay as long as I can as well.
No, I can. But there’s still only so much vacation time that I can earn, and comp time (flexible time that you earn for overtime work). And I think we kinda have to take the time from the 24th to the 1st unless required to work a mission, so I’d want to leave earlier and just do what we can. Of course, everything is also dependent upon work availability. I doubt it would be a problem, but I wouldn’t be able to know what things were looking like until a few months out. That will determine whether they allow me to be gone through the 7th. I’ll be there for as long as I’m allowed
