Hi, after failing self-referred ASAP program, will you be flagged? And if so, will this prevent you from taking block leave thats coming up in a few weeks?

Thanks for the chance to help. I am an attorney with over 12 years military law experience.

Yes...failure of ASP is grounds for a Flag. And yes...a flag is a basis to deny leave, even block leave.

The AR that deals with this (AR 600-8-2) states that a flag prevents

"Advance or excess leave, unless granted as an exception to policy by commanders in accordance with AR

So you can certainly request to go. But the AR allows the commander to deny leave based on the flag
