I was selected for a Direct Commission on the first board (OCT) of FY18. Does anyone know how long the process takes for SECDEF Approval? AOC is 70B. Thanks in advance!!

In the National Guard, you can “scroll” for 8 or more months before it’s finally approved.

Hey Kyle, I was picked up for 70B on this board as well - congrats! I’ve spoken to a few recruiters as well as my own, and scrolls that were. Submitted around the time mine was (October) are beginning to come back now and should start flowing in after the holidays! Do you know what unit you will be serving with yet?

I’m actually still waiting on my scroll, but it should be the last piece of the puzzle for me. It looks like I’ll be heading to a ground ambulance company. Do you have any good info on DCC? Being so new, I haven’t found much info at all on it.

Unless Reserves has a hidden nuance Your Direct Commission Fedreq does not take long mine showed up between 5 or 6 months from my appointment by the state Fed Req is FedReq the difference for Guard is NGB facilitates the packets since we don't utilize HRC.

SGT, I am still waiting on my scroll as well. My recruiter says scrolls have been coming back, but nothing yet as far as my scroll goes.

I was told because Amedd is a specialty services that is why it takes so long.

I was picked up for 70D and the recruiter just confirmed that scroll is in but memo from HSD that says we can commission is still pending. Any idea on how long the memo will take?

Memo can take a little while. My timeline was October Board, early December Appointment Memo from HRC, late December scroll approval memo from HSD, January commission, and now still waiting on discharge orders from enlisted unit before I can be cut orders for new unit. You’re commissioned as soon as you swear oath and complete DA71, but you may be sitting a little bit longer while the paperwork catches up to you.
