The Transfer Process
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 IST Coordinator in your state to inform them of your pending move.

Your state's IST Coordinator will then contact the Texas Army National Guard IST Coordinator 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 Texas Army National Guard IST Coordinator. Your transfer will be coordinated between the respective state IST Coordinators and the Soldier.
