  • It all depends on what type of charge it is. For example: Certain domestic violence charges can not be waived because it falls under and certain law that forbids the person convicted of ever owning or carrying a gun...hence why they can not go into military. Most branches have a waiver for everything. Have him call his local recruiter and set up an appt to talk. The recruiter can be very helpful. Best wishes.

  • And you are right, the military will see ALL charges regardless of when they happened or even if they have been expunged off your record.

  • It depends on the branch and on how madly they need people. The restrictions are fluid according to need. At least that's what I have been told.
