Give Felons The Right To Join The Army/Military

Messages 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.<br />

I made some mistakes in my life and got a couple misdemeanor convictions right at the age of 18. I've wanted nothing more than to join the military and I think there's no better way to prove my merit as a man and as a citizen.

It was my dream as a child to be United States from rain. But I was barred entry due to a few minor charges on my juvenile record which occurred when I was 14 for bringing a having a Swiss army knife at school. And in my early twenties I got caught shoplifting a couple times but in the State of Florida 3 misdemeanors constitutes a felony. Because of those reasons I am completely barred from joining any of the armed services even though my last defense was almost 8 years ago and in any other state would be considered a petty misdemeanor that's exactly what it was the name of the charge is petty retail theft. I believe that allowing felons the second chance to rejoin the military, Granite their charges are not sex charges or extremely violent charges, would be a step in the right direction towards Justice and equality for all Americans. We need to let these men and women have that second chance to prove that they are worthy and not just second-class citizens. And until we do so we are creating a full-fledged generation of embittered, and Angry Young American men and women who have nothing to look forward to in their life as far as career options because of their criminal records. It would be great to Institute of program of clemency based on military service. Meaning if you serve a full four-year contract with the United States military that your record be completely expunged and or pardoned. Not only would that open up so many doors of opportunity to these young men and women within military career, but after serving their country faithfully and with honour, if they chose to go and return to the private sector of employment they would no longer have the stigma of being labeled a felon and could actually get a decent job or career or further their Education and Training.

Everyone should have the opportunity to serve their country...even those who have made errors in the eyes of the law. The military is the greatest tool we have as a civilized society to rehabilitate those who have crossed a line and desperately want to get a clean start. I believe the military will provide greater guidance than parole or probation could EVER offer.

Those who make mistakes should be encouraged to make amends to society and not punished for life.
