Per Army Regulation 601-210, Regular Army and Reserve Components Enlistment Program, dated 31 August 2016:

Paragraph 3-19d(1) Verification of Prior Service:
(1) For prior U.S. Marine Corps service—

(a) If separated for less than 1 year without a Reserve obligation, request is sent to: Commandant, Marine Corps(Code MMSB10), Headquarters, U.S. Marine Corps, 2008 Elliot Road, Quantico, VA 22134–5002.

No mention of a DD Form 256 in the regulation. Your initial enlistment contract which required that you have an 8-year obligation and your DD Form 214 both should show when your IRR is up.

You're correct. My DD 214 should suffice, however, I am being told by USAREC that I have to show proof of my discharge from the IRR. My REDD report and DD 214 are not enough. That's why I'm trying to...

You may want to visit a local recruiting office before any road trip

Well, if they don't follow their own rules, do you want to deal with them? Sounds like either someone doesn't know their job, or they don't want to deal with you.

Good luck. When I enlisted into the Active duty Marine Corps a second time after getting out 18-months before, my DD Form 256 did not show up until 2-months after I was on active duty.

Someone here, a couple of years ago, answered this question re how to get a DD 256. I printed it out, complete with phone number in Virginia to call, etc. Will look for it after the Superbowl in a few hours. Meanwhile, take a look at similar threads re DD 256/DD 256 MC. I will get back to you on this, though, but I have to find the printout, which I know I still have.

Just by the way, that office apparently deals with DUPLICATE DD-256's. But they, if anyone does, would certainly know about original DD-256's also, so give them a call.
