There is no suppose to in the military. My DH was in Iraq for 15 months and never got his 2 week leave. The military picks who goes on leave. If he does not have enough leave days to come home. Then he can not come home. When my DH was in Iraq, they where only letting the guys who had pregnant wife's go home to see the baby after it was born. The Military makes up their own rules about this stuff.
