What is HBL?

Holiday Block Leave (HBL), unique to U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command units, marks an annual time when thousands of the U.S. Army’s newest Soldiers travel from their training centers across America to their homes for the holiday season.

The HBL will allow nearly 40,000 new Soldiers to travel home from their initial military training units in mid-December. In addition, morale, welfare and recreation activities have been identified to ensure the well-being of Soldiers who decide to stay at their training locations during HBL.
