A friend of mine tried joining the army a few years back and they wouldn't take him because of a juvenile felony.

You have to contact the courts and have them remove it from your record.

As far as I know, the rumors of juvenile records automatically disappearing have been greatly exagerated.


Also, Incognito you mentioned a "fitness training corp". If there is a draft do they have provisions for a "detox corp" so people can't avoid the draft by smoking marijuana and failing piss tests?

I also think the Defense branch of the armed services are a great idea, especially with the compulsory service. If everyone served they would have a much better incentive to pay attention to what happens in our government.

They can check these records. They'll find out. And for other stuff, like the Green Berets, they ask you again, and for that, they definitly check it. Get caught in a lie, and its 'bad'.

No he did not admit to it. It was still on his record as far as the military was concerned. He called the courts and they told him that he had to ask them to erase his juvenile record.

It might not show up on an employment background check, but it still shows up for the military.

Yeah im checking but i may be wrong, i guess it depends, a felony could be a problem, an arest with no convictions, i dont think would be, its a agmble i guess.

You can get in the Army with a felony but it has a lower class felony.

As far as failing a piss test well you can fail and still get in with a drug waiver but that will also keep you from obtaining a job more to your liking other than say like infantry, which isn't bad at all.

I agree 100% that everyone should serve some for or another in the military for at least 2 years it would definately change a lot of people and make this country a better place.
