It really depends on a lot of different things. Such as, where he will be stationed. If he is stationed nearby, you could see him every weekend or sooner. If he is stationed in another country such as Okinawa Japan, you will see him once maybe every two years. Another thing is if he is far away, he will accumulate 2.5 days of vacation per month. If his command allows him to take days off, he can, but only he can request the days off, and usually a month or so in advanced, unless it's an emergency. I used to live in Ca, and was stationed in Nc, I usually got to go home once or twice a year, depending. Also this doesn't count if he gets deployed, which you won't see him the entire deployment. However there is usually a pre, and post deployment leave he can get to go home.

There is lots of variables once they get out of Boot Camp, you can expect 13 weeks at least for Boot Camp after that though it all goes up in the air depending on deployments and other training.

Look up on the internet his specific job he has/is enrolling for, the website will tell you what holiday breaks he gets, and how many weeks off a year.

Holiday breaks! He's in the military not in the private sector! So No Christmas break, or any other legal holidays are days off, unless you take "leave" vacation days.
