so on july 31 2011 i was arrested for a dui and mip but in my court hearing i got my dui amended to a negligent driving of the first degree and the mip dropped and since then i have tried to join but as soon as anyone hears dui i get blown off immediately. i was wondering since i wasnt convicted od dui if i could still join the military. any responses would be great. i also have a re code of 3 from the army national guard.
What is the RE3 from the NG for? I was on recruiting for 3 years up until last year and towards the end if you came in and said you were a prior service guy with an RE 3 from the NG with a DUI (its all in the wording, if you did something to get it "amended" then it means you are guilty, for instance "hey i will do 90 days of probation if you drop it to negligent driving", thats guilty of DUI) I would have turned you away in no time as well, so I can only imagine how bad it is now...specially if your RE3 was for misconduct.
Lead by Example!!!

Are you trying to go active Army now? You will have to go to a recruiting station and bring your NGB-22 document with you. You have a lot of strikes and even two years are considered too soon to re-enter based on the normal "prejudice" but it does not hurt to check.
