United States Department of Defense Maternity Leave Comments
  • "There is no paid maternity leave. It is simply your combined sick and annual leave. If you choose, you can advance yourself 6 weeks of sick leave that you eventually have to earn back. With a child, it's very difficult to earn that back. Besides, you only earn about 1 day/month. However, this is a very young population of people, so woman are always leaving on maternity leave and people are very supportive." - Madam Miracle
  • "Standard six weeks paid maternity leave but not very flexible" - Anonymous - 9401
