I have a soldier whose leave situation is all messed up. Due to some errors with signing him in and out of leave while taking R&R from Iraq and being sent to the hospital for recovery and two trips on emergency leave, he was at one point 67 days of leave in the hole. That was -67 days past his ETS balance. After a while any leave he took he had to pay the army for.
I'm trying to get his leave situation squared away, but our S-1 says we need a letter of lateness signed by the commander because the issue is so old. They couldn't help out our training room with how to write one up and the training room has no idea what to do. I'm wondering if anybody here knows how a letter of lateness should be composed. My soldier's morale is understandably pretty low and getting this taken care of would go a long way in getting him back on the right track.
