Give Felons The Right To Join The Army/Military

5,818 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.

I am a felon, and I would like nothing more than to fight for this country and pay back what I feel is owed. I have made mistakes in my life. I would like a chance to show everyone that a person can change and live a good life.

I messed up as a kid and have learned. I was punished and completed everything asked if me but yet I can't join the military. I have family members that have served and still serve. From a captain in Nave drill seargent in Army and a master chief in The Navy Seal. I'm just asking for a second chance so I can serve my country be proud
I understand some people, but it is absolutely ridiculous for those that got in trouble for stupid things. I believe that if some time passes and it goes without incident then they should be allowed to join. I also understand that perfection is something the military strives to attain and due to that and budget cuts that picky becomes necessary. But let's be serious, if someone did something a long time ago or in there naive youth, why should they be blocked from entering the military given they are otherwise qualified? It is wrong and a dream killer.

first of all I love my country but it has become oppressive when someone makes a mistake and turned his whole life around and wants nothing more but to serve his country and be a true American and set an example for others but a mistake can affect them for the rest of his life this needs to change I just want to be a patriot
Second chance
Everyone deserve a second chance
