What is DA 31 Form?

DA 31 Form, or Request and Authority for Leave, is a form by the Department of the Army that military service members use if they need to request for temporary leave — personal, emergency, or travel.

Soldiers are entitled to leave for 30 days per year. If you want to take a leave, complete DA 31 Form and submit it to your commander at least 29 days before your vacation. It is ideal to talk to your commander first, informing him or her of your intent to file a leave, before completing the form.

During the entirety of their leave, soldiers should keep the form with them.
