Give Felons The Right To Join The Army/Military

Felons Are People To They Have The Right To Fight For Our Country

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’m currently on probation for selling 28 gs of marijuana which is a felony. And I have another felony for residential burglary. I would do anything to get into the marines. I’m trying so hard to better myself and I don’t care what it takes but I need this in my life. I’ve quit everything and I’m working a regular job and I want to achieve my dreams and goals. I’ve done some stupid things in the past but it should’nt reflect what I want to do with my future. If anybody could help me with this I would do anything and bust my*****harder than anybody else in the military.

I strongly agree. Everyone deserves A second chance. Especially; if one was in the wrong place at the wrong time. I see individuals being able to become better individuals by joining the Army. Its basically what they need to get away from their past, and to have A brand new start.

Some people having a felony don't mean that they're a bad person that wants to go and fight for their country they probably are better off getting someone with a felony because they have more chance of defending their country

I support this all the way because I always wanted to be a marine since I was a little kid but couldn't because of my juvenile past. They wouldn't even let me join when I showed them that I change my life and got my GED and my associate degree . So if they really pass this I'm in there most definitely because I got alot to prove. I'm going to give it my all and make a career out of it.

I tried to join the navy, after my mom died, in 1979. They denied me because of a juvenile felony. I tried to do this, cuz I knew where I was headed, and needed help. After denial, I was convicted of new felonies, and sent to prison. My life was on hold for 3 years. Now, I still love my home, and IDIOTS are trying to give it away. I don't blame them for this, mostly because they're naive. They don't understand that Islam has been teaching "death to America", for AS LONG AS WE'VE BEEN A COUNTRY!
