LeaveWeb migration

The LeaveWeb server at Luke Air Force Base is scheduled for migration at 9:30 a.m. EST July 10.

Members may use the direct link to LeaveWeb, https://leave.Luke.af.mil, to schedule leave during the migration period. For more information, call the 56th Comptroller Squadron at (623) 856-7028.
