If you choose to fly (either to home of record or to duty station), you get 1 travel day regardless of the location of your duty station.Does anyone know how much time they give you to get from the academy to your facility?
If you choose to drive, you get the amount of travel days as allotted to your receiving facility. Generally speaking, you receive one travel day for 8 hours of driving between MMAC and the receiving facility determined by a mapping service like Google (ie. 9 hours would be two travel days). You will receive a lump sum travel per diem voucher equal to the comparable cost of a plane ticket to your duty station.
You also receive an additional 8 days of Change of Station Leave which may be used to supplement additional travel/moving leave as needed which remains valid 2 years from your placement date.
On placement day, you will contact your receiving ATM to discuss using COS leave if needed and determine when your first day will be at the facility.
Although the day after placement day is considered your travel day, you are normally finished by 2pm or so and free to leave at that time to begin your travel of choice.
