  1. About 13-14 years ago I was charged but not convicted of 6 felony’s. Larceny from a person and assault with a dangerous weapon. Do you think I could still get a waiver?

  2. I got a 5-10 or 5-15 probation meaning I can get my 2felony expunge, do you know what branch or would I be able to still join

  3. Is there anyway I can get driving privileges, I have had 2 attorneys talk with the judge.
    I don’t have a military background. But could use some help. Thank you.

  4. I have a felony of cocain possession from 9.5 years ago I did my time and and payed all fees waited 7 years I want to inlist into the navy or army but they don’t even try they just tell me to call them back in a week and then say sorry can’t. It’s as if they don’t even try. Some don’t even see me. I was arrested in Florida and have become a better person since no other convictions. A waiver is for something that makes you ineligible that is why they exist so what can I do to get a recruiterto actually try and get waivers if it doesn’t work then at least I tried but to not even get past 5 min with these recruiters is the hardest thing

  5. Looking to join the Air National Guard. I had a misdemeanor DUI in 2005, 15 years ago at the age of 19. Will that require a waiver?

  6. Bruh I got shitty charges fighting with my ex almost 15 years ago agg assault sex assault stalking and everything was dismissed it’s bs I’ll let you know if I make it I’m doing waiver

  7. 5 years ago I got my first offense which includes POM-Misdemeanor class b which I served probation for and a evading arrest-felony which was dismissed! I haven’t gotten any tickets ever since or in trouble with the law. Is there a chance I can get in? I’m barely 25!

  8. I had multiple felony charges as a teenager and am now 21. Burglary, battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest with violence, and a few aggravated assault charges from fighting with family. I am not what my record says I am and am a different person. I wanted to help by serving my country but I'm pretty sure I'll never be able to unless I get drafted in war time.

  9. I was 19 and was with the wrong people and got first degree residential burglary and have been on probation for 2 years and have 1 year left and haven’t been charged with anything since. I just turned 22 and still want to join the NAVY.

  10. I want to join the army. But I am 31. And I have a pretty lengthy background from years ago. I use to drink and have a bunch of different misdemeanors. No felonies. Will I be eligible for a waiver?

  11. If this is true then my recruiter lied to me.
    I was arrested bc a cop said they smelled weed coming from my car and regardless of what I think happened, the cop said they found wait for it, .798g of marijuana in my car and issued me a ticket for simple possession of marijuana and a court date.
    By the time my court date rolls around the cop either resigned or was fired but the courts didn't tell me that. They wanted me to do the pretrial intervention and pay the fine, so they just kept summoning me back. 7 times. Eventually the case was dropped bc the officer no longer worked there.
    My recruiter said this means I will need a waiver bc I was summoned to court therefore I have a charge.
