b. Enlisted Personnel. While off-duty employment by enlisted members of the
Armed Forces is normally permitted, AMEDD personnel require prior approval. Local
regulations should be checked.

permitted to interfere with the customary or regular employment of local civilians in their
art, trade or profession. Outside employment refers to any civilian pursuit, business, or
professional activity for which the enlisted person is paid for his/her services. When a
question arises, seek advice from an ethics counselor.
d. During Strikes. Off-duty employment of military personnel by a business
involved in a strike is permissible if the person was on the payroll of the business before
