Give Felons The Right To Join The Army/Military

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 know what I have done.
I deeply regret my offenses.
I have no excuses.
And so it is written.
But can it also be done that I have been given the chance to repay and restore honor to myself and my country that I love and I owe too. It is my dream to serve this country as my way of life. I cannot see, I, David L Iborti, doing anything else for a living than to serve my country for the rest of my life.
Let it be written. Let it be done.
I wanted to join the military since I can remember. A couple days after 18 I lose my dream because someone over exaggerated a teenage tussle. I'm 21 now, I can't be happy
Got in trouble? Society punish you.
You change your life and pay off your debt? Society still punish you.
Looking for a job? Nope, your still a criminal in their eyes.
Want to join the military? Nope, your a ex criminal who can only join when war happens because they don't "need" you yet.
Living as a ex criminal sucks and the only way to live is to get lucky or go back into the criminal lifestyle. I hate how this system work and I'm losing hope for myself. If congress change this then at least I would be able to make money while serving my country.
I believe people should get a second chance at life we all make mistakes it's just every body dont get caught no body is perfect

They shoulf have limits though. .it shoukd depend in the amount of times and what for..murderers and rapists or sex offenders no! But this is great to give those eho want another chance a chance
How can a person with a criminal background survive when they can not get a job because of their background? Serving in the military would benefit everyone in so many ways.
