  • Switching from Air National Guard to Army Guard Inquiry...

    I joined the Air National Guard July 2011. I have already completed BMT & Tech School. I have been working with ARMY personnel on a regular basis during the greater part of the past year, being stationed at Fort Lee. I have such an elevated level of pride in being an Airman and wearing blue. I enjoy the way of life, my AFSC (Air Transportation Specialist), the people etc. With that said, as i stated prior I have been working on a daily basis with ARMY personnel and I have become very interested in possibly switching from BLUE TO GREEN (Not talking about the program for Active duty). Prior to me joining the Air Guard I had the urge to go to my local National Guard recruiter and talk with him about joining etc. I never did that to no one else's fault but my own. Long story short, I was curious as to others experiences with this. I know some may have the opinion that I'm stupid for even considering going from Air Force to Army and I respect their opinion, but I just feel theres definitely something for me to look into here. Im aware that training is different, as well as I'd go from working with Planes/Aerial Transportation to Weapon Based/Combat training and I don't mind that or any Deployment/Deployment Time. Any help/direction/insight would be greatly appreciated. Is the process long? Is it difficult to do during your enlistment contract? Will I have to do BMT again?

    Once again I thank everyone for your time and any information you contribute.

    You only been in for a little over a year. You will have to go through Army basic combat training if you do transfer.

    You will have to give it time because I doubt the Air Force will release you to transfer because you havent given back anything as of yet.

      Here's some general information on being Prior Service Air Force: http://bit.ly/NK8k3d. Cityslicker is correct, though. You may not be released from your commitment as easily as you'd like. Keep in mind, too, that if you accepted a sign-on bonus, it will be even more difficult to do as you're likely to have to pay it back before switching.
