A shot in the dark here. Has anyone transferred from a TPU status to an IRR status in the Army as an officer? I just emailed the IRR branch today. I figure this process will take a while. Can anyone provide any insight on what’s needed and timeline? Thank you!

You will need to write a memo explaining why you want to go into the IRR. To go with your packet. It's a simple process but you might want to talk to your commander because you are going to need her/his signature.


So a follow-up question, since you are still in the Reserves, does it really matter if you are TPU or IRR status? Still, the same branch, and I would assume that it isn't much different. Now if you were on active duty and then switched to reserve, that would be completely different.

A little confused about your question.

I am currently a TPU and that means I drill monthly and two weeks out the year.
IRR does not do anything but they can choose to get put on Orders for a few months and get off orders and get put back into the IRR.
As a TPU wanting to go into the IRR I would need to submit a letter with a Packet. An IRR service member would not do anything because they are already in the IRR and just waiting until their contract is done.
