Well, when I was first placed into the IRR, I did not have to request transfer. You still did not tell me what component you were in. Because I was in the Guard and knew of Soldiers placed into the IRR without any action required of them and many on AD that did the same. Simply go to your S1 and inquire.
Please accept my apologies for skimming over your question as to my component. I am in the Army Reserves on a 6x2 contract.
I wish it was as simple as going to my S1 and inquiring. I am in a Legal Operations unit ran by all 27D series MOS, including our UA. We're pretty knowledgeable about legal matters, but not so much about S1 issues, so most questions to my UA do not get a satisfactory answer (or, usually, don't even get a response at all). We drill as a 3 person team 3 hours away from our headquarters, as well, so unfortunately I cannot just walk into my UA's office to ask him in person.
