(10) years of such service. Accrual in excess of this amount as of January
1 of each year shall be forfeited by the employee. The President may
permit an employee to carryover more than the allowable accrual when
the employee was prevented from taking enough vacation to reduce the
accrual because the employee (1) was required to work as a result of
fire, flood, or other extreme emergency; (2) was assigned work of priority
or critical nature over an extended period of time; (3) was absent on
full or partial salary for compensable injury; or (4) was prevented

Veterans’ Day is rescheduled for observance on another day by
the President pursuant to Article 13.2, consideration shall be given
for multiple employee requests to use vacation the day the holiday is
