    Army to AF Transfer (Green to Blue)

    Gotcha I read though a few of those blocks in chapter 10 last night and you are right...there is some verbiage that makes it confusing. Shoot me a pm and i'll hook you up with some info that might help you out.

    Army to AF Transfer (Green to Blue)

    I’m not sure where the “if they owed me active duty” concept came from as I was only asking about any commitment you might have....but you answered that. In regards to your previous commission, my understanding is yes they would recognize your previous commission. Whether they back date your DOR, I don’t know, but your flight pay will back date after the ARB is complete and you have more than 400 hours showing on the bottom right block of your 759. I am almost positive they would not count any of your WO time for time in grade of your previous commission grade.

    Army to AF Transfer (Green to Blue)

    Do you have any ADSO currently with the Army Guard?
  5. Another Update 02 Dec 2017: Interview 03 Dec 2017: Hired 06 May 2018: DD Form 368 signed by State J1 in April and submitted to NGB 24 July 2018: Transfer Packet kicked back from NGB for wording and resubmitted 06-07 Aug 2018: Flight Physical Completed 10-14 Sep 2018: Flight Physical Results returned week of I was also informed that NGB changed their accessions process to require ETPs to be completed and approved before swearing in.....fortunately I already had my flight physical done so I could push that up as soon as the policy dropped. Transfer packet at NGB paused New policy came with change in ETP checklist and shortened timeline (approx 30 days) 21 Sep 2018: ETP pushed up 25 Oct 2018: Age Waiver Approved at NGB (34 day turn around)
  6. Fellow Air National Guard Hopefuls who are of the elderly variety.... Attached is the newest NGB ETP Checklist. I couldnt upload the fill-able form, but this will allow you to see that the ETP checklist has been drastically cut back from the previous. My last conversation with my recruiter indicated that NGB has changed their accessions process and now requires ETPs to be complete before swearing in just like the reserves. They also indicated that Age Waivers are now to only take 30 Days as opposed to 6+ months. I received this information early September and my packet was pushed up at the end of the second week of September. I was told that my packet is now on the CC and CF desk and should be approved this week. Fingers crossed! Hope this helps! NGB ETP Checklist.pdf edit: ETP signed off today! (34 days in new policy)
  7. has anyone else's hiring recruiter for the air guard told you that NGB changed up their process now? They are processing age waivers before swearing in after i have been waiting for 133 days to swear in to begin my age waiver process.
  8. here is all i know. My recruiter uploads documents through a "portal" that is specific to the recruiting office. so the commander does not have visibility on this. This is where he uploads documents and if the records are pulled they can show the status as being reviewed or something. When they kicked mine back, they also left a note in the system for the reason so corrections could be made. I'm sorry if this is vague. I'll ask him what the system is next time i speak with him. edit: HQ is different because that is internal within their state. Those documents are probably floating around different peoples email inboxes at state headquarters before they go up to NGB
  9. Update Interview: 02 Dec 2017 Hired: 03 Dec 2017 DD Form 368 signed by State J1 in April and submitted to NGB: 06 May 2018 Transfer Packet kicked back from NGB for wording and resubmitted: 24 July 2018 Flight Physical Completed 06-07 Aug 2018 Flight Physical Results returned week of Sept 10-14 still waiting for NGB to process transfer at 135 days in process....now they changed their mind and want to ETP to process before letting me swear in

    2019 Air Force Active Duty UPT Board

    Thanks! I’ve already been hired and the unit is working an ETP. I’m just hoping to not have a 6 month wait for it to process

    2019 Air Force Active Duty UPT Board

    I just saw that as well. Do you know if the Guard will be following suit?

    Probably not a statistic anyone tracks. From the visits I have done and various units iv was in contact with while rushing, very few units have prior 60 drivers. The unit that hired me, I’m pretty sure I’m the first Army RW guy to ever get hired.

    What are my chances? Civ to UPT: the old-guy edition

    first..."restricted to that state" please go a little further with that...are you worried about not being able to live out of state and commute to the squadron? Or worried about transferring to a different unit in another state? As far as your recruiter goes...who cares what their feelings are. You are pursuing success in your career...not his. Sure he wont "get the sale" but you should not concern yourself with the whims of a recruiter. They are there to fill slots and meet quotas not be career counselors. They don't have your best interest in mind....generally speaking. As far as ETPs are concerned...there is no rule that says reserve gives them more than the guard of visa versa. even a unit that gave one to a guy may turn around and completely deny you because they wanted that last guy...and don't want to hire you as much as they did that other guy. Even then...a unit that historically has been giving away ETPs can change in an instant with a change of command who does not want to support ETPs. Cat the net far and wide and don't major in the minors. If you get hired by a guard unit, and later want to switch to a reserve squadron or a different guard squadron because they are closer to family or whatever...the squadrons will typically understand and support you. Hope this helps
