As some of you may know, I am in the National Guard seeking a conditional release. At a recent drill I was inquiring as to the status of my release and nobody had any information. My PL happened to know the officer who is responsible for releasing me from the Guard at the highest level of the process and decided to send an email inquiring about my status. The response was nothing short of discouraging. The officer in charge of everything said that wanting to sign an 18x contract was not an acceptable reason to request a conditional release and that I should reenlist and tryout for 20th group or just hope I get a ranger school slot when I reenlist. My ets date is in October and come hell or high water I'm signing an 18x contract the week I ets. I was hoping to be able to leave much sooner than I am but everything happens for a reason. I have some contacts at the main HQ and I'll be making some phone calls this week to try and find a way around this setback. In the meantime I'll continue to do more PT. I feel like I'm in excellent shape right now and could attend SFAS right now if needed but there's always room for improvement. I know​ this wasn't much if a question to anyone but I wanted to update that I'm still working towards this goal and I can't wait to be in an environment with people and leadership who are actually striving for excellence. I'm staying the course and trying to keep a positive attitude. Everything happens for a reason.

Why not attend a SFRE with 20th GRP? I'm currently doing one with MDARNG and it is TOP NOTCH! IT IS ALSO A GUT CHECK!. You will learn not only about yourself but also from the cadre. They will give you tools and guidance for success all you have to do is show up, on time, and have a never fucking quit attitude. I'm not sure why you wouldn't want to take advatage of the 20th GRP, especially being your already in the Guard and in a state that has A SOG.

My ETS date is in October and I want to be in the Army full time. I want to do it every day. I understand that they prepare me for success but so does the SFPC and the team of leaders I currently have around me.

I'm waaaayyyy out of the loop on this now, but my foggy memory tells me you can go Q via ARNG, and ask to be release over to AD once in the / at the end of the Q.

IIRC, there's 3 or 4 ways an individual ARNG SF unit approaches recruitment; it'd be something you want to discuss with them up front, but IIRC, some don't mind, others its a hassle cos of the way you're detailed.

For example, some you remain in an 11B slot with in the state ARNG, and are lent to the 18 unit, and don't go on their books until you graduate. These guys may not care if they loss you to AD, for example. I could be wrong in this specific example, but just trying to give you an e.g.

Call and have a chat to a few of your closest ARNG SF state units, be polite, advise your goal, see what they say. If they say no, advise them you understand some states are geared in a way to find this easy, and could the person your talking to recommend any.

Things have changed so YMMV.

Good luck.
