Hello all,

I am in the USAR, and I am currently transferring from my MI Detachment to a CA BN. I would like to know how long the process takes for the transfer to be finalized after submitting the DA4651 through my current unit?

Depends on the speed of the Commanders and the 1 Shops. I've seen the requests signed, approved and orders cut within 3 days (this actually happened with me). I've seen others take a month (also me).

It depends on the approval level. I had to pull teeth to transfer from RFX BDE Advisor to a non - deploying 1SG slot. And that was only after tidying up my section and gift wrapping out on a nice green bow for my new CO (Who was previously my section chief). There was some discussions WITH Senior NCOs and Sergeants Major before the final sign off at MACOM. Pushing hard, I got it done in 5 weeks.

SFC, what was the highest level your transfer had to have approval? I am active duty oconus and my husband is trying to transfer to a unit closer to me. However his unit is RFX and it has taken us 18 months, and his paperwork sent all the way to a general and it was still denied. Just wondering how we can expedite the process.
