Interstate transferring allows Army National Guard Soldiers relocating to Idaho to enlist into the Idaho Army National Guard before moving. This transfer is most common with Soldiers moving to attend school or accept employment here in Idaho. For more information contact Idaho IST coordinator: (208) 272-3626
CAN I RECLASS TO A DIFFERENT MOS?
Yes, however, your ASVAB score and unit vacancies in your new unit will determine which MOSs are available.
CAN I TRANSFER AND BECOME AN OFFICER/WARRANT OFFICER?
Yes. You can transfer an active component or another state’s National Guard and become an officer or warrant officer in the Idaho Army National Guard.
IF I AM RECIEVEING A BONUS, WILL I LOSE IT IF I TRANSFER?
If you are currently receiving a bonus, you will need to transfer to a state that holds a vacancy with your current rank and MOS. Please review your DD Form 4 and speak with a transfer coordinator for more guidance.
HAVE YOU RECENTLY RETURNED FROM DEPLOYMENT?
The Idaho Army National Guard offers a 24-month stabilization policy that allows transferring Soldiers to make adjustments for their civilian life.
This policy establishes a 24-month stabilization period for prior service Soldiers following their initial enlistment/accession into the Idaho Army National Guard if they have been mobilized at least six months in the 24 months preceding their enlistment/accession.
During this 24 month period, prior service Soldiers will not be subjected to federal mobilization; however, they will be subjected to all State Active Duty missions and unit training requirements. This does not preclude prior service Soldiers form volunteering for mobilizations within those 24 months. Soldiers who accept a key leadership position during their first 24 months will deploy with the unit if that unit is mobilized.
