  • Question regarding IST Transfer

    Hey everyone,

    I've got a best friend on active duty with the 82nd ABN who married a National Guard E-3 68W. Not sure what state, but she's looking to transfer to the NC National Guard as a 68W. An IST recruiter (I assume near Bragg) told her that NCNG had no open billets for a junior enlisted medic. My best friend tells me he contacted a local unit who said they had several such billets.

    Any reason for the disconnect? Can she execute a direct para/line transfer from her state to a unit in NC without going through a recruiter?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    IST's are not really done through recruiters. They are done through the IST Coordinator. If she has already found a local unit that is willing to accept her, than they just need to get that information to the IST Coordinator.
