MILPER Message 17-052, Call to Active Duty is a fast track conditional release as the Active Component is trying to plus up quickly before 30 Sep.

SSG (Join to see) - Roger, I know how an open door policy works, I'm just inquiring if transferring to the IRR would be a faster route to return back to the active duty component.

We've had three soldiers go from reserves to active in the past two months. Two medics and a cook. It didn't take long, about a month and a half. Might also depend on your MOS.

I wasn't implying you didn't know how it works, just that not many people use it because we don't want to jump the chain. But nobody is going to look out for you like you want.

Like SFC Penderson said, the active side is trying to plus up so going straight that route is easiest now.

SSG (Join to see) - yeah I believe it was the command reason why it took this long also the UA sitting on my packet didn't help. So I ended up having to get a more recent 368 signed by the recruiter and resubmit it

If you are currently in the Army IRR, an Active duty Recruiter cannot help, you must speak with the Reserves Career Counselor and get into the Reserves and then go speak with an Active Duty Recruiter to do your DD form 368 which is the conditional release form and turn it into the reserve unit. From there it can take up to 6 months before the DD form 368 to return.

It has to go up to the first General Officer in the Chain of Command which is why it usually takes so long. That's who needs to sign the 368

Awesome, congrats! Now to do your application, if you have a copy of your old SF 86 that will help a lot with the application

SSG (Join to see) - Thank you for all your advice, I went today to the office and I might not meet requirement because of my time in-service 10 years and 9 or 10 months active duty and then one of the recruiters in the office also said got to include the days you drill also. So I might not be able to go back in, at least I tired.

I would have to say That depends. It really depends on your BDE policy on conditional releases. One of the units I support can get a conditional release quite easily. For another the General doesn't approve them unless they have a really good reason, and "I want to enlist in the Active Duty" isn't a good enough reason.

Only your active time should count against you. As long as you still have enough time to reach 20 active federal time before age 60 it should be doable.

SFC (Join to see) - well because my active time adds up to 10 years and 9 months they are looking at a RCP for an E5 is 14 years on the active duty side. So the recruiter is also saying we have to add each day you drill also as an active duty day.
