    It will not affect your vacation at all. No employeer can make you take vacation or other benefit time if you are a reservist.

    If you have past military service it will depend on if they give your credit for the time served. If they give you credit for time served you will earn vacation time passed on the date they give you. When I went to the VA they gave me 3 years as a military nurse towards my seniority. Which did not effect my vacation time since I was title 38 and not a GS 4/5/6. I am not sure when vacation time increase but lets say you have 4 years in the military and the VA gives 1 weeks of vacation for 1-3 years of seniority and 2 weeks for 4-10 years of seniority. If the VA does not give you any credit you would have 1 week of vacation and if they gave you the 4 years of seniority for your military service you would get 2 weeks of vacation.

    Hard to say, the VA moves at their own pace. It sounds like you have the job, just waiting to pass everything.
