Give Felons The Right To Join The Army/Military

9,627 Letters Sent So Far

I am asking congress to support letting felons into the army/military. I think that if someone has proven to change there ways in life and be a role model citizen then there is no reason to not let them join. This is descrimination against USA citizens. These people are trying to better there life and that is what the USA stands for.

If these men and women are looking to change the path of their life in a positive way I believe the military would be a positive support in doing that. The unitedness that comes from military involvement may just provide the necessary measures to assist in obtaining an upstanding life. I am sure that many of these young men and women would prove to be very retainable service members.
Joining the military will help shape these boys into men. You cannot expect for a felon to grow and change their life's when you simply kick them back into the world that doesn't doesn't want to help them change. Most of these boys were raised without a good father figure and I believe joining the military will help them become good respectable American citizen. You can not expect for a person to grow when they are stuck in the same place with less opportunities to change.
No one should be haunted from crimes of their past. Nor should the right to serve your country be restricted as a result of your past infractions. We must allow people, Felon or not to be better and do better as serving the country is a great way to do that!
