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 />

Prisoners are already adapted to some of the more difficult and often violent realities of this world, and that sort of fortitude that can often be found in former prisoners should be welcomed with open arms into our Armed Services if an individual has expressed a selfless desire to serve his country. You're fixing to need us, sooner or later.

Life happens, people make mistakes but those who change and learn from them and are seeking a better life or another path should not be punished. I ask you to truly consider this.

I served my country and did a tour in Iraq. Fell on hard times made a mistake but I'd give anything to be able to reenlist. We should allow people to serve their country and better their society.

Quit punishing felons for the rest of their lives by denying them access to a military career. This is one of many things felons should be able to do after they have served their time for their crimes.
