If you have less than 36 months active federal service, are E1-4, and have a clean discharge or a signed Conditional Release from the first General in your chain of command you can go Active Duty in your choice of a small list of MOS's that the Army is in need of. Google "Prior service business rules" for more details. The main line that will likely pertain to you is 7d. If you do not meet the requirements in 7d, then read the rest of the message for additional options. If none of these work for you, there is also the AGR program for both ARNG and USAR.

Good answer, Sir. Just changed from 36 months to 48 months last week, though. Some stipulations apply, as always.

SFC(P) (Join to see) - Thanks for the heads up, I'll have to look up the new message. When it changed from E3 to E4 I know I made a ton of phone calls to previously DQ'ed applicants, and 48 months is even better. I just left USAREC a month ago and I guess I'm already that guy giving outdated information.

1LT (Join to see) - Think you're good, Sir! The message didn't even change. Just came out that "for a limited time" the 36-month requirement changed to 48, but I don't recall the limitations offhand. Still doesn't help a lot of people, because of most contracts being 4 years plus training anyhow.
