i need help transfering from the TN ANG to active duty, im being told from my ready NCO that the TN ANG doesnt like to release anyone because they paid for their training etc.. but i transfered to TN ANG from the PA ANG, so that means that the PA ANG paid for my training and they took back all the gear besides my uniforms and ive been at my new unit for about 6 months and havent been given anything.So all the paid for was for me to show up at drill. Im in a personal company which is mainly 42A's and im a 25U. theres also only 2 25U slots but there is 3 of us? whould anything listed above help me to go active?
ANG stands for Air National Guard not Army National Guard (ARNG).
Anyway, submit your DA 4187 and DD 368 Conditional release form up the chain and see what happens.
I went from the Guard to Active in 2003 and been serving for 9 years already on Army AD coupled with my AD time in the Marine Corps. To me, it was the better option to complete 20 years of active duty.
For Army reserve to active Army here is the current process: 1. See AD recruiter and have them start DD368 (conditional release). 2. See your retention NCO for a retention counseling. (DA 4856) 3. Fill out a DA 4187 (request for personnel action) Your recruiter MIGHT help with this. 4. Write a Memorandum for conditional release stating why they should release you. 5. See your Commander for a Commander's counseling (DA 4856). Get CO's signature on 4187. 6. This entire packet must now go to Brigade level for approval. If approved: You take the 368 & 4187 back to AD recruiter and begin the process of enlistment to AD. Remember to bring ALL the paperwork with you that you had to when you first enlisted (birth cert., Driver's lic., etc. and remember you will need the same for any dependants plus marriage license if that applies. All origional. documents with raised seals. Then it's off to MEPS for you! I am going through this right now, So I can assure you this is the current process.
There you go bro a straight foreward answer.

Wow, I think someone is a little brainwashed. Also even though this is a public forum young Pfc you could at least have a little respect. Also without the "support" infantry wouldn't survive. I thought they would teach y'all that at sand hill. Also as a young pup, you do not know everyone's story. This will count as your free pass. Don't let it happen again though.
Also this forum is meant to address Soldiers questions and concerns. I believe theWiseChief is one of the more informative people on this forum and now you should hope you don't need his wealth of knowledge in the future or god forbid his help on a deployment. If you have any more more INFANTRY is shiz stuff that you want to spout come on down to Central Command and I will show you how worthless the "support" elements are but I doubt our "J2" would not even let your young punk ass in.
