  • Can Guard go directly into the IRR

    Can a member of the Guard go directly from a drilling unit to the IRR? I would like to take a GS contract for a year deployment but I do not want to go into the ING. My S-1 is saying that the only way to do this is to go the DD form 368 route get released, join the reserves go to a unit and then request to go into the IRR.

    You can go into the IRzr from a TPU staus. Going into the USAR would cause even moe of a delay as you would turn around and have to get a release from them.

      Your S-1 is smoking crack. You can go into the IRR...but why wouldn't you want to go into the ING? That would be easier.

        Right, nearly all of the people who ask about this are involved with other government gigs. IRR would make you eligible to be plucked for a deployment...from all 3 Army branches. Probably not ideal.

          Current Army G1 guidance strongly discourages involuntary mobilization of IRR Soldiers.

            I hardly ever hear of anyone being mobilized involuntarily from the IRR now. With that said, ING is the way to go.

              Since my question relates, if one goes into the ING or the IRR, are they still accuring TIS/TIG or are they basically halting thier career?

                Officers cannot go into the ING. You can get promoted in the IRR if that is what you are asking.

                  You can be promoted faster in the IRR than you can as an active drilling member in some states like New Jersey.

                    That was exactly what I was asking.

                    An opportunity arose to go to the sandbox as a civilian contractor but I wan't sure how it would play out.

                    Thanks for the input.

                      Yes, but all of which could change. Still a degree of risk. I am sure everyone was thinking the same thingon 9-10-2011 no?
