MAKING THE SWITCH
Transitioning to and from active duty
If you’re considering a transition from your Army Reserve unit to Active Duty status, contact your local recruiter. He or she will be able to determine if you are eligible to transfer, and will assist you in the process.
Pick up a DD Form 368 Conditional Release from your Army Reserve unit. Your recruiter can help you fill out the form. The first general level Officer in your chain of command must sign off on this form. Note that you are not guaranteed release and approval may take several months.
