Re: RASP slot at AIT (11B)
It is true that you have to be Active Duty to attend RASP 1 or 2 and no you cannot simply transfer to Active Duty while in AIT. You signed an enlistment contract with the Army National Guard.
The only way to attempt this before the end of your current discharge date is to request a conditional release from the National Guard. Basically, a conditional release says that the National Guard agrees to release you from the remainder of your commitment, if you are accepted for enlistment or appointment to another service component. To start the conditional release process, you must request a conditional release from your current unit and complete a DD Form 368 "Request for Conditional Release".
