I recently got married and my husband is an Active Duty Marine stationed in North Carolina, and I’m planning on moving to be closer to him.

Im currently in the Illinois ARNG (88M) and I contacted the old IST coordinator for the state, and she submitted my paperwork through email to the RNCO at my unit and also, the new IST coordinator for the state.

I have drill at the end of January, and that’s when I plan on turning in all my gear and doing all necessary paperwork with my RNCO to be submitted to the new IST Coordinator. Once he receives the paperwork from my RNCO. What are the next steps as I haven't been in contact with him yet? Should I contact him prior to drill to make sure he got the email or wait till my paperwork is submitted to him?

Also, if anyone has numbers to ARNG armories in North Carolina near Havelock, 28532, that have open 88M slots could you please leave a reply under this? I’m having trouble getting into contact with units I can transfer to or atleast split drills until my transfer is completed.

Thank you!!

As your spouse is active duty in the Marines, you may need to consider requesting a conditional release to the Army Reserves. Once he PCSs again you'ld have to start this whole process again and as your finding now, info on new states is hard to find.
A TPU transfer in the Reserves is fairly straight forward and through RSTs you would be able to drill with your new unit, and be paid by your old unit, while your transfer is pending.

You're going to always want your receiving party to be tracking what's going on. As so they can make sure there are no surprises and/or limit hick ups along the way.

When I transferred from Montana to California, I had 90 days from the date I signed out of my old unit in Montana to find a new unit in California and sign in. I checked the yellow pages, called around to see if any of the units needed somebody with my MOS. When I could not find a unit nearby, I signed into an armor unit and filled a billet with a similar MOS (but not the one I held). I then retrained into the new MOS.
BTW - This was in 1982 so things may have changed.
