Greetings thank you for taking your time to read my question. I am currently an E3 and am part of the Florida National Guard. My MOS is 91B diesel mechanic and I joined the guard 11/20/2012. I am trying to get all the info that I can find on transferring to active duty. I am more than willing to reclass to a different MOS to do so. I am still pretty new and don't quite understand the prior service rules completely. I was wondering if there are any active duty recruiters from Florida that can shine a light on the subject.

Thank you very much for your attention.

I went from the national guard to active duty twice, but that was many moons ago. Back then I just needed my commander to release me. I’ve seen other soldiers do it and they never had a problem. I don’t think many commanders will stand in your way to go active duty.

As far as what options the active duty recruiter can offer, that changes often according to the needs of the Army.

Good luck.

Thank you for your answer SFC Pakenham

I did read about the conditional release and i'm trying to get info from my unit to see if they would release me. We had a guy recently transfer to the Navy (granted it took about 8 months wait but he got it approved. I guess i'm just trying to get info from an A.D. recruiter that I can take to my commander.

Again thank you for your response and have a great day.

As much as the active side is downsizing the guard side is trying to maintain and in some cases grow. Most likely they do not want to lose the investment that has been made with state dollars.

Might be tough with only 2 years in. A conditional release would be required. I had to get one as I left the Air Guard for Army Guard then Army Guard for Army Reserves. If you can't go AD, try Tour of Duty. It's a good way to find slots for going on orders.
