    Call a Recruiter. You'll need a DD FM 368 (Conditional Release) signed by your Commander. A Recruiter will do that for you. You need to know that it is not an automatic approval. You contracted with the Reserve and now you are asking to be let out of it.

    My advice to you is to talk to your Commander first and explain why you want to go Regular Army. Say pretty please and plead financial hardship. Your family is starving, your kids need new shoes, stuff like that. That will work in most cases.

    Also keep in mind you may lose a rank by going active.
