form. This form is used to request leave, serve as the
leave authorization document, and report ordinary
leave, sick leave, graduation leave, and emergency leave
when funded orders are not required.
Block 1, and blocks 3 through 22, of the
NAVCOMPT Form 3065, are completed by the member
requesting leave. When leave is approved, commands
and/or departments assign the next LCN in block 2 and
complete blocks 24 through 26.
NOTE: The member is authorized to make
comments on block 24 of the leave request
authorization, if so desired.
As soon as the LCN is assigned on the leave papers,
part 3 should be sent to the disbursing office. In the
disbursing office, part 3 is used as part of a tracking
system that provides checks and balances.
NOTE: Checks and balances mean that both
offices can check with each other. This helps avoid any
problems that could arise.
When a member departs on leave, blocks 27a
through 27c are signed by the command duty officer, his
or her assistant, or the member according to local
command policy. If the member is authorized to call in,
he or she must record the time, date, and person
contacted. The member is provided part 1 of the leave
authorization. He or she must keep this form in his or
her possession for the duration of the leave period.
Upon the members return from leave, blocks 28a
through 28c of part 1 are completed indicating the hour
and date of return plus the signature of the individual
checking in the member. This information is then
transcribed onto part 2 of the leave request/authorization
that is kept in the command/department leave file. Part
2 is then forwarded to the member after all applicable
blocks have been completed and leave has been charged.
To make sure that leave is charged, part 1 of the
leave request/authorization must be sent to the
PERSUPPDET and/or the personnel office. Part 1 is
sent to the PERSUPPDET and/or personnel office so
that an SDS event and/or a NAVCOMPT Form 3060 can
be prepared to charge leave. After documents have been
prepared and submitted charging the leave, part 1
becomes a retain file at the disbursing office and is used
for future reference.
When members are in possession of a meal pass, the
meal pass must be retrieved before they depart on leave.
An entry such as the one shown in block 24 of figure
14-3 should be made on the leave authorization. After
the member returns from leave, the meal pass should be
returned to the member.
When an extension to an approved leave
request/authorization is granted, commands/
departments must remove part 2 from the approved
leave tickler file, annotate and highlight blocks 29a
through 29c, make a copy of part 2, and forward it to the
PERSUPPDET and/or the personnel office so that they
may update the leave ticker file and notify the disbursing
Before personnel depart on leave, they should be
reminded to make sure they turn in the part 1 as soon as
they return from leave so that leave may be charged.
If you are responsible for charging leave, make sure
you charge leave on time. Review your leave tickler file
daily. If personnel forget to return the part 1, give them
a call and inquire as its whereabouts. If the part 1 has
been lost, use the part 2 to charge them. Nevertheless,
if you have not received the servicemembers leave
papers by the tenth day tier the expiration date of the
leave, charge the entire amount of leave authorized on
the leave request authorization.
Be aware, however, that sometimes members do not
take the whole leave period authorized on their leave
papers. Sometimes members take more leave than was
authorized and somehow you do not receive notification
about the leave extension. In these cases, you should
verify the number of days leave the member actually
took with the members supervisor.

accounting for leave, refer to Leave Authorization and
Reporting Procedures, Navy Members Only,
