No not on leave. Contrary to popular belief, 100% of the US forces are NOT in afganistan looking for UBL. I live in P.H. with my family. I am currently serving in Pearl Harbor, attached to a shore group that fixes what the Navy Seals Break. It's a living. Did 11 straight years on deploying Submarines and am enjoying the time ashore.
