I want to go from ARNG in one state to Air National Guard in another. Due to personal shortages I will have to ETS because the state won't release me. I plan to ETS one day and the very next go sign the contract with the Air Guard. With no break in service I will get to stay enrolled in the legacy pension and won't have to be thrown in the Blended Retirement System correct?

The system is based upon DIEMS (Date of initial entry into military service); if you didn't elect BRS in January of 2018, you won't get enrolled into BRS when you change over to the Air Guard. The automatic enrollment into BRS is for first term, initial entry ascensions (those whom never served and are serving for the first time in the Armed Forces).

That probably won't work out as you are planning. There is preparation that is required for processing enlistments and reenlistments and the ANG will need your NGB22 at the minimum. Knowing the Guard, you probably won't ETS with it in your hand.
As for your original question, you get to keep the legacy retirement. You will have one year after you join a new component to switch into the BRS if you chose.

I see, I've been in touch with the air guard recruiter already. I have an up to date NGB22 actually. I keep jumping onto active orders for one reason or another. That's one thing my unit is actually on top of. Good to know I won't be forced into BRS. Thank you for the info

If I had a nickel for every person who told me they were working with a recruiter already, I would have a lot of nickels. Every recruiter tells their recruits they can walk out of one service and sign into another the next day. That is technically true, I just have yet to see it happen like that.

If you have IRR on your contract, i.e. 6 and 2 or or 4 and 2, then you can talk with your IRR counselor to help you with the process of transferring into the Air National Guard. As for the state to state transfer that will be something that you will have to contact the state command to gain more information. However, keep in mind that you can also consider getting an aviation job in the Army National Guard if your state has the MOS available.

Also, it maybe easier to talk with your current state's Air National Guard to gain the transfer from Army National Guard to Air National Guard, then take the state to state transfer option. To be honest this is really a state command issue and I would run the rabbit that direction if the options I stated are not available.
