Wage & Earning Statement vs Terminal Leave research

Rate this question



I am attempting to collect information regarding my early exit (Terminal Leave) from the Army back in 1986. My military records do not seem to contain documentation of my actual Terminal Leave request and approval, so I submitted an LES payroll request for the time period involved.

 The LES documents that were emailed to me are pretty mediocre quality so they are difficult to read and I was hoping someone can take a quick look to see if I am missing something regarding the terminal leave?  I believe I took about a month plus/minus of total terminal leave before my scheduled ETS date of Nov 9, 1986. 

 The LES websight has legends of what all the boxes pertain to on the wage and earning statements, however they were a bit different back in the 80’s than the examples shown, so I am having trouble sorting out if leave shows being liquidated during the last month of service just prior to my ETS date of November 1986?

I do see an interesting caption in the REMARKS section, on the last two stubs: “Member Removed for Early Separation” and the one prior to that reads: “Member Removed for Normal ETS".

Any help in this matter would be very helpful to my claim.


PS, I attached the LES file just in case the link above does not work. 


Thank You
