Applied for the Army back in '12 when I was ~19. Was rejected because I have three juvenile criminal charges. including misd. commercial burglary and felony narcotic possession, all happened 7+ years ago.
The Army wouldn't even talk to me after seeing my criminal record (back in 2012). With Trump in office I was hoping the Army would become less restrictive on who they recruit. it sucks they wont consider people like me who have a dark past but want to serve the country.
Are they budging at all on the recruitment standards? I called the Marine Corps last year and they flat out told me NO chance, and to try the Army again. Has anyone on here had a similar experience or was able to get a waiver for a Felony drug charge? Might call the recruiter tomorrow and check again. Curious if anyone has been in my situation and got a waiver granted or at least started?
