I am interested in enlisting in the Army. Im HIGHLY interested in MOS 15Q. I recently just bought the ASVAB book so I can study and score the necessary 100 in aptitude area ST. I also understand this MOS requires a security clearance which if an applicant has a pior "record" he/she wont be able to qualify. Well, thats my hold up and reason for this post. Recently in November I caught a charge for 'possession of a weapon for unlawful purposes' and I am now awaiting my court date on 01/26/11. My lawyer got the charge dropped from a 3rd degree, to something less then a misdemeanor. He ensured me that I will still be able to enlist in the military. A little background on the actual charge is the "weapon" I had was a car ice breaker, the tool you use to scrape the ice off the wind shield. I was drunk and I was at a party and I used the ice breaker and started banging on a random car's hood. Thats all im guilty of, and take full responsibility of the outcome. Then again, I dont think my charge is serious enough to be denied a security clearance which will limit my choices in the military. I dont pose any risk to the nations government or etc. Is there anything I can do about this? I know my record will now always be scarred but I feel im not even giving the time and effort by recruiters to even see whats the most we can do about this situation. Is a wavier possible? What should I do, because I looked at other jobs which doesnt require security clearance but im not interested in any. I plan on retiring in the military. Please advise.
