Transfer Note 1

AFI 48-123:2014 doesn't actually mention that a 180-day break in service necessitates an accession examination when transferring to a position in an Air Reserve Component. It is a reasonable requirement, however, because, without it, a person could join under the Chapter 5 criteria, and then one day later apply for an AGR tour, again under Chapter 5 criteria, whereas going straight from a break in service to AGR would require Chapter 4 criteria. I therefore conclude that the intent of the regulation is to apply Chapter 4 criteria to persons entering an ARC position with a break in service of 180 days or more, and so it is reasonable for the CA-ANG to adopt that standard.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
