Give Felons The Right To Join The Army/Military

7,124 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.

My son is 22 years old and had a rough start at life. He's a good man but is constantly judged because of things he did when he was young & didn't always think things through. He had to go to a boot camp when he was about 15-16 and he thrived there. His father was never around & when he did happen to show up he was a horrible influence. My son never had a strong make role model and he deserves to be allowed to come into his full potential.
Just got bad news from my recruiter... Because of a felony that I was never convicted of and the case was dissimised and because I have a GED the army disqualified me from enlisting. My recruiter said unless I have a high school deploma the army won't review my case. Passed my ASVAB and was going to MEPS Next Tuesday!!! Now all my dreams got shut down.

Any one else have the same thing happened to them.
My boyfriend made a mistake by hanging with his cousin who is a repeat felonistfelonist & was caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. He is a very responsible adult and is a good person with morals. This mistake has caused him to not be able to enlist although he scored high on the test & is psychically fit. People change and should b given a chance.
I want to join the military but cannot do so because of mistakes I've made in the past when I was younger.
I want to serve my country it's been 10 years.. Let us join..
I want in!
