A Leave and Earnings Statement, generally referred to as an LES, is a document given on a monthly basis to members of the United States military which documents their pay and leave status on a monthly basis.
Employees in the civil service receive a similar document each pay period, but it is instead called a Statement of Earnings and Leave.
Famous quotes containing the words statement, leave and/or earnings:
“The parent is the strongest statement that the child hears regarding what it means to be alive and real. More than what we say or do, the way we are expresses what we think it means to be alive. So the articulate parent is less a telling than a listening individual.”
—Polly Berrien Berends (20th century)
“Men go out to admire the heights of mountains, the huge waves of the sea, the broadest spans of rivers, the circle of ocean, the revolutions of stars, and leave themselves behind.”
—St. Augustine (354430)
“The earnings of a poet could be reckoned by a metaphysician rather than a bookkeeper.”
—Edward Dahlberg (19001977)
