Department of Defense


The Department of Defense (DoD) is charged with coordinating and supervising all agencies and functions of the government relating directly to national security and the United States armed forces. The mission of the Department of Defense is to provide the military forces needed to deter war and to protect the security of our country.

The Department of Defense is America's oldest and largest government agency -tracing its roots back to pre-Revolutionary times. Today, the Department is not only in charge of the military, but it also employs a civilian force of thousands. With over 1.4 million men and women on active duty, and 718,000 civilian personnel, DoD is the nation's largest employer. Another 1.1 million serve in the National Guard and Reserve forces. More than 2 million military retirees and their family members receive benefits.

Perhaps you are working for the DoD or interested in working for the DoD. Here is a forum to share your experience with the DoD.

I would think supporting the mission comes before physical fitness.

The PT hours are not a right. So, management has decided that if you need overtime, then the gym hours need to go (more time to do the work), and then determine if OT is still needed. If it is, it is not because someone is out of the office working out vs doing the mission work.

Unless you are in a bargaining unit, and the contract requires bargaining unit employees be given a specific amount of time for exercise, then management can end all exercise time. Consider in the same way as telework Nice benefit, but not required.

I'm pretty sure the agreement I signed had that clause in it. Something about forfeiting the PT hours if overtime was required. Seems fair, Otherwise they'd be paying you overtime to work out.

I see the OP deleted their post and left the building after finding zero support for their concern!

I noticed they have had only one other post...and called themselves a non-entitled vet!
