  • NG to AD

    I ETS March 19 and I'm trying to go Active Duty. I talked to a recruiter and she needs an NGB Form 22. I was told by my Readiness NCO it would take about 30 days after my ETS to get it. If I have already told my Readiness NCO that I need one ASAP, why would it take almost 2 months from now to get it? Seems like since I'm ETS'ing they're really not trying to help me out. Anything I can do to speed up this process?

    Why didn't you get a DD368 signed and approved in the meantime? How many years of service do you have? It will be a shame to have a break in service.

    I switched from ND to AD and started the process in early 2003 and got it approved by summer 2003. I was able to go to MEPS and get a 31B reservation and decided to leave in January 2004. I received my NGB 22 from the State Area Command (STARC) in Hartford, Connecticut. I was in the CTARNG.

    I suggest you call up your STARC S1 and inquire about it. Do you have a full-timer that works at your unit that can help?

      As you know, a conditional release takes forever. It goes all the way up to the TAG and in Va the only way he's letting anyone go is because of some kind of hardship. My DD214 has a reenlistment code of N/A because I went back to my unit once I got off deployment. My recruiter needs something with a reenlistment code on it, which would be the NGB Form 22. It does suck to have a break, but I just don't understand why it would take a month AFTER I ETS to get it, when they know a month ahead of my ETS that I need it ASAP.
