Say I want to travel from JBLM, WA to Los Angeles when I'm off duty, do I need a pass to travel during a normal weekend, or does it need to be 4 day weekend? I've heard of some people just taking off and driving home for the weekend and then returning for PT on Monday.

SPC (Join to see) check with your NCO-SUPPORT CHANNEL/CHAIN OF COMMAND TO HELP SQUARE YOU AWAY. It depends on your unit's policy. When I was stationed at Fort Lewis, WA we had a 250 MILE radius safe-zone-outside of that we needed a pass and counseling DA 4856. I was stationed there April 2000-January 2006.

Most units have a radius around the post that requires some kind of paperwork to be done regardless of if it is a regular weekend or a long weekend. Best to ask your NCO leadership as they should know if there is a radius.

Check with your unit off-post leave/pass policy through your Chain of Command
