This Directive reissues DoD Directive 327.5, June 29, 1974, to establish policies for leave, liberty (pass), and administrative absences that shall: Be consistent with the uniformity required of the Armed Forces by Title 10, United States Code 704. Provide respite from the work environment in ways that shall contribute to improved performance and increased motivation. Ensure maximum use of earned leave, minimize the loss of leave, and reduce to the maximum extent the costs of payments for unused accrued leave.
