Having 2 DUI would cause you to be a waiver. I would check with the recruiters in that area to see if they are taking any misconduct waivers.

If you can get the court documents for both of the charges. The recruiter will need them.


Good Luck

I have talked to three different recruiters in the area and they all say the same thing. I will get back to you in a couple hours. Then I hear nothing it's been about a week and a half.

2 DWI's show a pattern. What was the time btw. the 2? IF you are able to come back in through a waiver for serious criminal misconduct 2X then it will be after Oct. 1st when the fiscal year resets. You most likely will not be choosing your MOS either since most medical MOSes require that you have an absence of drug or alcohol "issues", and guess what doing something 2X does? You would know what your MOS is before you sign any contracts. The Army has exceeded its recruting mission for about a year now. You should have joined a year and a half ago and it would not have been as hard.

SORRY but IF I were a recruiter, I wouldn't be in a hurry to do Extra Paperwork for someone's Serious MISTAKES either.

As Corvette says, right now due to the economy the recruiters are having to turn people away. There MIGHT be changes in October when the Army starts its new "fiscal year."

I hope you have changed since the offenses- and realize IF you are entered into the Army there is NO Tolerance for behavior like that.

Don't take this the wrong way, but my bother is in the army. He tells me that there are many and I mean many people in the army with way worsest offences then DUI. And yes I have changed the first DUI was when I was 17 and I learned nothing due to the fact that I was young and nothing really happened to me. The second one I almost lost my job and it effected my life so many ways and cost me a lot of money. I would never want to get another DUI in my life.

Is worsest a word? Anyways. Your brothers right. However, I'm pretty sure they came in prior to recruiters making their quota for FY09. If prior service of RE-1 codes can't come back in. Your chances with past offenses is pretty slim til atleast October when the army begins the new fiscal year as Autobahn has stated.

Everyone here is giving you the advice/answer to the question you've asked. Arguing with them because it's not the answer you want to hear isn't going to get you anywhere and since your brother knows all. Why don't you have him convince the recruiters to sign you up?

Look, bkeric, it won't be easy to put you in the Army. You will have to pass the ASVAB test. Study for the ASVAB or else you will not be able to get in now, or even in October. I don't know why the Recruiters are not calling you back, but it may have something to do with it.

The reason your brother knows people with worse offenses than DUI (and I think DUI's are pretty serious) is that at times the Army can let in people who have made mistakes in the past and learned from them. The Army will not rehabilitate you. You must show the Army that you have changed from the person who got those two DUI's.

College is a plus and will be taken into consideration when you apply.

PM me with your phone number and let me know if you are still interested, and I will see if I can find out why you are not getting call backs.

Good luck


If NCO's did their job, I wouldn't have mine.

bkreric, sure there are people with worse offenses.......in quartermaster or transportation MOSes. Not taking away anything from those areas, but that is where most "waivered" soldiers go. More "exclusive" branches/areas within the Army require more "exclusive" soldiers. Realize that you really will not be calling ANY shots coming in, because you would be VERY lucky just to get in.

Corvette you aren't lying. I am reminded of that every day lol...Especially in the quartermaster MOS. I just left from doing a 1 year tour at FT Lee. Truthfully I do not see how most of these soldiers are in the army. Its that bad. Worse then anyone could ever imagine. Those of you that have stationed their know Their know what I am talking about. Their is a reason behind this which I am not going to discuss on here(do not want it to take away the spot light of helping this future soldier out).

Navy med would not entertain the idea of putting you in the field, just as Army, Marines, Coast Guard, or Air Force would not. You WILL NOT come into any medical branch with your previous history. Now weather or not you can come in is a different question that have a lot of variables come into play:

What have you been doing since the charge?
Employment wise.

Are you a member of any community or Church organization, that just by association it hints towards a reformed individual.

What letters of reccommendation do you have?

Can you even pass the ASVAB, let alone obtain a good score to qualify for Radiology?

Believe it or not the Corps are really stringent about waivers. It is because they do portray the most professional image (my opinion).
