I'm hoping someone here has gone through the conditional release from IRR process to enlist before and can help me figure this one out.
I was discharged from the Army National Guard in May, 2015 and was supposed to be in the IRR until May, 2017. I met with a USCG recruiter the first week of this December (2016) and completed/submitted by request for conditional release at that time. He expected not to hear back for a couple months. Surprisingly, he calls me back three days after I met with him to let me know the Army had already granted my release.
Today (1/7/17) I receive a letter in the mail from the Army welcoming me into the IRR. I thought my window for getting signed up for another branch was at least 90 days? It's been almost exactly 30 days since I was supposedly granted my release. I'm already scheduled to go to MEPS this Monday and Tuesday to retake the ASVAB and get my physical done. I'm hoping the letter was sent in error but I won't be able to call and talk to someone from HR until Monday.
Is this going to be a huge problem? I've already had MEPS rescheduled on my twice now. As it's the weekend, my recruiter is not available to answer these questions so I won't see him again until the day I'm at MEPS for the ASVAB. If the Army has for some reason decided to take my back already will I have to submit a whole new request for conditional release?
