sooo some of you may remember that DH was going in the Army and actually signed and swore in back in Feb. Well DH got in trouble back in high school (nothing since except a couple of traffic tickets) and got finger printed for one but there is actually nothing on file in the county court house but DH's finger prints popped in the FBI database after he was finger printed at MEPS. Well apparently the Colonel wouldn't sign off on his waiver because he had signed off on another guys waiver and he got a DWI a week later so they said DH has to wait 6 months and not get any tickets or anything like that and he could resubmit his paperwork and he should get in then. Even though we had a certified letter from the courthouse saying that there is no record of the offense. Well one of our good friends is retired Navy and made some calls and after hearing back put DH in touch with someone much higher up on the food chain in the Navy. They are running his info and told us to go talk to a recruiter since either way he'd have to go through a recruiter to get in but they said they didn't care about that stuff and they'd take him. My family has either been Air Force or Army....I know NOTHING about the Navy. But our friend said he truly believes that the Navy would be great for our family. Are their any Navy wives that can give me some info? I'm very worried about what will happen...it sucks that DH's mistakes back in high school, almost 7 years ago is holding him back now. I really thought it was done and he was going but I didn't know they could do that after he signed and swore in but then again it's the military. Any advice you can give is greatly appreciated!
