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

That's why people should be SLAMMED the first time.
I AM glad you've got your head together now.
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).
Well as far as my employment history. I have only had one job since high school. That was working for Tyco electronics, which just closed the plant that I was working at. As far as letter of recommendation I can get one from Lieutenant Colonel in the Air Force and one from one of my college professor's. I already passed the ASVAB got a 116 GT score. That is the only thing that I got out of talking to a recruiter in my area. That was only because when I showed up they were on their way over to MEPS. So I asked to go take the test. On another note, so let’s say I get a waiver and take whatever job they offer me. How hard is it to get your MOS change to a 68p or any other medical field?
In your case VERY difficult because of past history that hints towards abuse OR even possible dependence. Actually I am going to say in your case it will be impossible. If you did not have that then once a person, completes their initial obligation, or is in a overstrength MOS they have the possibility of changing MOS.

well im sure you didnt want to get one the first AND the second time you got a DUI, but you still did b/c you were doing the wrong thing...the reason your brother sees "many, many" people with worst things is b/c they joined before the ARmy started closing categories.

I dont feel like looking at the reg but if two DUIs have to go all the way to USAREC fora waiver, you are SOL until after the new fiscal year and there is no guarantee it will happen right at OCT, it could be sometime next year, if you only need a battalion waiver then it should be "easy" to do...what did you score on the practice test at the station? did you graduate HS? what else you got on your criminal record?
Greetings to everyone, I need some answers and support regarding my enlistment process.
I have tried to get enlisted since early July; by the 15th of the same month I passed my ASVAB test at the Meps (i'm attaching my score report with this email). But before they sent me to take my Physical, my recruiter in charge showed me in the computer all the MOS specialties that opened after she submitted my name, code and score. She and I were surprise because 5 medical MOS (68 P,K,Q,A,W) showed in the row ready to pick up or get reserve, but a big inconvenient didn't allow me to choose my desired P68( Radiology specialist) MOS right away. My waiver wasn't ready! I was charged with a misderminor DWI in 2004, almost 10 years ago and since then i had not committed any other infraction, misderminor, felony or warrant of any kind. Since day one I expressed my interest on that particular MOS P68, and I only was waiting for that waiver to get approved while I crossed fingers wishing that P68 won't close up in my face.
Well, by now I do believe i picked the worst recruiting office in town, the first recruiter to take care of my paperwork was Sergeant. 1 , then after a few weeks they passed me with Sergeant 2, she took me to the MEPS to take the ASVAB and showed me my MOS options, then after a month i got kicked with Sergeant. 3, He took charge of my case and set up an interview with an army officer to explain my DWI case and why i want it to enjoy the Army, I passed this interview with no problem. A few weeks later he took me the hotel to get my physical done. I assumed after i passed my physical I could finally have the chance to choose my MOS, sing up and pledge but that wasn't the case. I got stuck with this Sargent for almost 2 months, always giving me pity excuses why my waiver was taking too long, to the point that I certainly started believing that these people at this specific recruiting office weren't taking me serious. Finally, after 3 months of trying to get enlisted the Station Commander Sergeant 3 showed up and took me to his office. I thought he had my waiver approved and ready to process but NO, he said that they weren't ready because some more paperwork was needed and even tried to brain wash me to convince me to pick whatever specialty will be open when the time is right. he said by tomorrow noon (wednesday, October 9th) I'll be ready to go, sign and pledge. Off course I will negotiate on my behalf.
I personally believe there must be some kind of bullshit involved, and even I thought several times to find another recruiter for my own good. Since the beginning of my enrollment process I was couch by my uncle who is about to retire from the Army after 24 years of active duty. He trained me and taught me a lot about the way how the Army life rolls.
Well , My uncle doesn't have any friend recruiter what's so ever. i am not sure if you have one or not but if you do, this is what i want to get. I'm not sure if recruiters are the only ones who can get into your files and find out which MOS are open for each candidate at a specific period of time, if this is the case I want to find out a friendly recruiter who can tell me when P68 is available to be chosen.
By this time I think several bad things about the recruiting office that had been handling my case. Maybe they need to feel up the quota with lame specialties and they intent to brake me so I end up picking whatever they want me to pick, or even the thought that my waiver was approved long ago but they wanted to make sure I won't be as stubborn for that particular MOS, I even consider to choose 68K Laboratory Specialist.

Thanks for your time , hope you all are doing great.

The problem is, you need a waiver, the Army doesnt "need" people like we did before so why is the Army going to run around crazy trying to accomodate you, when they can get someone else to sign up for that same MOS that meets all qualifications with no waiver needed. I understand you are frustrated but what I recommend is either suck it up and hope waiver gets approved at some point, or join now with whatever MOS you do qualify for now.
