anyone's gang affiliation is not unknown to the military branch their serving in.
perhaps the screening is more stringent in any force, but the Army,
but that is the Armys' cross-to-bear!, they are the unit where 'things' are tested & explored! ...giving the other service branches a test-case
model for experimenting on their own recruitment & retaining criteria.
If the army needed to, they would "undesirable discharge' known gang-members...because, for starters, the gang motivated personnel had a
conflict in that their 'oath' of allegiance to the constitution was ?abbregiated? because of their active participation in a higher
calling, i.e. Gang allegiance.
there's several processes to uncover these 'gang-devoted sleepers',
unless the soldier is content to be a K.P. regular & a bottom of the ladder soldier, he/she will need to have at-the-very-least a records check
type of investigation for a minimum 'secret' security clearance...
as a squad or platoon member (as opposed to a K.P. regular) he/she
will need to have access to the daily crypto codewords...which requires at least a NSA/FBI/local-&-state police/ records check. which will
surely uncover the person as; one-to-watch for abberant behavior related to gang membership.
imho, it's all a designed 'controlled chaos' procedure...the higher level of military intel & the C.I.D., are keeping their Big-Brother eyes on
all these personnel (whether you know/believe it or not)
