    Okay here’s there question and I hope someone can give me a good answer, because getting one is starting to give me a headache. I am current Active duty Air Force with 2 years left on my contract. I have found out that I can complete a DD form 368 and get a conditional release from my contract to join another service. My question is has anyone had any experience with this and if so what is the process? Thanks!

    You and the recruiter fill out the DD368. The recruiter then sends it to your chain of command and hopefully it comes back. Not to discourage you, but most of them never come back.
    You can meet the standard, or you can set the standard. It's your choice.

    I guess sticking to the same general topic and for my own info, why do other services not accept USCG and USMC DD368's? I always thought a DD form is a DD form. Is it some unspoken agreement, or is it the USCG not agreeing to sign the DD368?

    I'm not following. I've never seen an approved 368 turned down because of the service that signed it. Is that what you're saying? Seems harsh to me.

    I was just reading that USMC and USCG members must serve their full enlistment if looking to go Army enlisted.

    That could be true. I hadn't heard that yet. Through my own experience, I haven't seen a 368 come back from the USMC yet, but that doesn't necessarily mean that it's impossible. I've known one or two coasties that got out to join another branch in recent times.

    Do you have a link to what you were reading?

    Its probably that they want you to finish your contract? Honestly its kind of hard to get out of a contract unless you do something to violate it.

    You signed a contract; full fill it then sign another one if you want
    Take what you like and leave the rest behind.

    Here is the link Chief. 

    http://www.goarmy.com/benefits/addi...green.html

    Selected members of the United States Marine Corps or Coast Guard, who are otherwise qualified, may be eligible for opportunities in the Army. However, Marines and Coast Guard will be required to complete their current term of active service.

    Oh ok. That specifically applies to the blue to green program, for those that want to join the Army bur are in another branch currently.

    Understood on serving a full contract Bells, but it's not like you are "breaking" your contract with the government/citizens. You are going from one service to another and you will probably end up serving more time than a standard enlistment if you were to make the switch. You swore in to the President of the United States, the Constitution and anyone (non-specifically) who is above you in rank. Not a service specifically. But this is probably a point and counterpoint type of forum discussion.

    It's a fair point.

    According to the Army site, it's still an active program.

    Did this ever go through?

    I am in the same situation and am searching for clarification.

    Thank you.
