When I was in Navy IRR and was looking at AF Reserve, the AF Reserve recruiter had me fill out the 368 at his office and he dealt with PERS 911 directly.Is anyone familiar with the process of going from the IRR to AF Reserves? Long story short, I will be in the IRR by the time I can commission in the AF reserves. I’m wondering if anyone here has routed a conditional release in IRR?
RCJHI just completed this process from Selected Marine Corps Reserves to Active Duty Navy JAG. I'm a Captain (O-3). Supposedly the DD 368 only needed to be routed to the first CG in the chain of command; but, for whatever reason mine was routed to HQMC for approval. Ultimately it took almost 6 months for mine to be approved as it was kicked back for petty corrections or additional information multiple times. I also had to request mast over some retaliation issues that arose after I expressed interest in switching branches.
When it was all said and done, I got my approved DD 368 with a 6-month window to commission in the Navy. I had to go through MEPS all over again. But the deed is finally done and I couldn't be more relieved.
Do you have an email for USMC-R, where I can send my request for conditional release?I am currently an enlisted IRR Marine in the process of going Navy Pilot (among applying a few other places). Getting a Conditional Release (DD-368) isn't too hard in the IRR. You literally just email the USMC-R down in New Orleans a filled form and they send you a response within 3-6 business days.
If you're active duty or a traditional reservist, it needs to go all the way up and down your chain of command which can take 2-3 months depending on how much your command cares.
