  • Traveling while part of the guard

    Quick question, as a part of the ARNG I can travel anywhere in the United States or go to Canada/Mexico, etc. as long as I don't miss any drills/training. Correct?

    To clarify I'm talking about vacations/trips, not permanent relocations.

    Yes, you can... to an extent. DoD currently has some restrictions based on local uprisings, unpopular government, MOS classes, etc.

    Canada wouldn't be a problem, but Mexico may pose an issue. Best bet is to check with the State Department's site to see any restricted travel for civilians and then inquire with your command about particulars for you.

      Canada wouldn't be a problem? Alright, that's all I need to know.

        Leader's Recon trips are highly encouraged around the border of Iran or North Korea.

          +1 about Mexico. You took the words out of my post. When I was a Marine in the 80s, I use to go to Tijuana. My buddy that was at Fort Sill said he was prohibited to going to Juarez.

          Again, it is for title 10 status Soldiers but definitely check with your command and S2.

              You should disclose foreign travel to your chain of command in advance. If you have a security clearance, your State Security Manager may have additional guidance for you.
