Need some input on how to go about my IRR packet, which has been kicked back. But now I am being requested to attach a justification memo.

Seems like I’m in a bind with my unit and not really getting much input or feedback just robotic email responses. I am having trouble keeping up with going to scheduled BA’s, I’ve spoken up about this. With not much of any family to help and them being states away and child care not so accessible specifically for weekends. To add on spouse is on active side and has been gone pretty much this whole year...will deploy also soon. There is more to this than just that but can’t type everything out.

Anyway my IRR packet has just been kicked back and they now want a justification memo..that is all the info I received. Nothing as to why this has happened. Also UA typed up a simple memo for me to just sign and send off already...but should I not be putting more emphasis on this memo so that my packet will be approved? Also, why would my packet just now get kicked back and what for?

With my initial packet I just signed the 4856 and 4651 and it was sent up. There was no talk about what would work best for me and I was aware I didn’t have any flags or unsatisfactory year. So, why would this packet be kicked back?

The letter of justification is you making your case on why you should transfer to the IRR. Basically what you said in this is the rationale. You need to put it into a memorandum format.

Thanks, I have just done that... tried to keep it short/concise so that if it’s read, hopefully it makes sense.

Lastly, can you confirm who’s phone number/email should be provided on the memorandum for the POC? I figured it should be my own and not my unit adminstators.

You should be the primary POC on the memo. You can put your UA on as a secondary but make sure you identify them as the UA.

SPC (Join to see) - Are you in a critical MOS?
Do you have Secret or higher Clearance?
Do you have any 'bad time'? Are you pending punitive charges?
Are you under investigation (Even if you have not been informed, which would place the onus on CID.)?

92A? No, I should not have any bad time that I’m aware of, I’ve asked before initially starting the packet.

Definitely not under investigation.
