My IRR is supposed to start in March 2020. My unit is Mobilizing in February. I have heard two things: 1. They can pull me because of IRR. 2: They can not pull me involuntary without signing an extension (or something). Does anyone know a for-sure answer? No-one in my unit is helpful enough to ask without getting told "ask her then ask him" and so on. *No I do not want to go, I am spending 6 months in Police Academy and Graduate in December, my heart is not in the deployment.

Have you actually sat down with your Leadership to address your concerns yet? Before you stress yourself out and give yourself a heart attack and/or stroke, just talk with your Leadership to figure things out.

Yes. Right now their not giving me a direct answer. They had us fill out a form and check yes or no to the deployment that's it. I checked "No" and stated why. Just looking for suggestions if I need to maybe talk to Retention? Im not wanting to jump the chain unprepared. I've talked to my platoon leader and S1 so far. I'm waiting to hear back about talking to the CO. Thanks!

SPC (Join to see) - Think of it this way: Transferring to the IRR is just that...a transfer. If memory serves, the Commander needs to sign papers giving approval. Just like a TPU to TPU transfer, the Commander doesn't have to approve the transfer. And, looking at this from a Commander and 1SG/Detachment Sergeant view, the deployment mission metrics will require a certain percentage of the unit IOT hit the ramp. If your physical being being on the books still gets the unit to that minimum required percentage...then I have some bad news for you. Not saying that this is the actual case, but a distinct possibility. If this is your first contract, then you owe the Army 8 years. How the Army gets those 8 years, they sometimes don't care. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you, but I would also say to not hold your breath for not deploying.

If your unit is not being helpful on this matter and you have gone through your whole chain of command and still don't get an answer then my advice is to inform the I.G. and let them know of the situation so you can get a straight answer.
Good luck to you brother.
