If you are a Soldier in the Army National Guard and plan on relocating to Colorado...
It’s pretty simple really. In fact it’s one of the easiest things we do as recruiters. To smooth the process, make sure you have a current Physical Health Assessment (PHA) and Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT) within 6 months of submission and that you clear supply with your losing unit. Your Colorado Army National Guard IST Coordinator will help you find a new unit here in Colorado.
All it takes is a completed NGB Form 22-5, amending your current DD Form 4, your last 2 Officer Evaluations, completed DA 705, DA 5500/5501 (if applicable), and current Officer Record Brief(ORB). Once the NGB 22-5 is signed you have 60 days to report to your new unit. Prior to relocation, please contact your current Army National Guard unit and begin the coordination of your transfer. Your unit will let you know what you will need to do in order to clear the unit and will subsequently contact the Interstate Transfer Coordinator (IST Coordinator) in your state to inform them of your pending move.
Your state's IST Coordinator will then contact the Colorado Army National Guard IST Coordinator (720-250-1351) to obtain a valid position for you. A coordinated transfer between states can be accomplished prior to your relocation by completing an Interstate Transfer Agreement.
Occasionally, Soldiers relocate quickly without ample time to properly coordinate their transfer. When this occurs, Soldiers must contact their current unit of assignment immediately to request an excused absence from training in order to find another unit in the new State (up to 90 days). Please note that you will be required to attend all scheduled drill assemblies with your current unit if this excusal is not granted.
Your current unit will contact the state's IST Coordinator and provide them with the updated address and contact information so they can provide an IST Worksheet to the Colorado Army National Guard IST Coordinator. Your transfer will be coordinated between the respective state IST Coordinators and the Soldier.
