I ETS July of 2021. I’m looking to use my Terminal leave and leave sometime at the end of April or beginning of may. My unit is suppose to deploy sometime next year and I was wondering what the regulation is on that and how it would work with me ETSing?

Don't share your deployment date here, but usually there is an EAS cut off for deployments. If they deploy any later then Jan, you may fall into that group. Have you spoken to your SNCO about this?

The same regulation that governs ordinary leave. Leave is up to the Commander. Make a plan and work it with the COC. There might be a unit or installation policy on terminal leave, but the regulation leaves it to commanders to manage. Army Regulation 600–8–10

Leave is the commanders policy. You technically could submit for leave and it be denied and you could ETS without taking any leave.

Cadet 2LT (Join to see) - unit commanders have a lot of different authorities that relate to unit mission readiness. It doesn’t mean an individual won’t get terminal leave. It means the commander has the final say (based on the impact on unit readiness). When I first went in, marriages had to be approved by your unit commander (I assume that’s no longer the case).

Isn’t this covered in ROTC?

We spent the whole year training tactics for Advanced Camp this summer sir. Wasn't too much administration learning, but since 21 is the last year,maybe .

Cadet 2LT (Join to see) - wasn’t meant as a “ding”; just couldn’t remember if I picked it up in ROTC or when I was active enlisted. If they haven't covered it, it would be good for you to do a quick look up. Talk to your active duty cadre (previous commanders) to get you pointed in the correct direction.
