Can a convicted felon join the military?

Answer

A person with a criminal record can be disqualified from the military because each branch of the military has high moral character standards. A person is not guaranteed a spot in the military simply because they apply; the military can be picky when choosing candidates.

Some crimes may be overlooked by the military in order for a person to be accepted, including civil offenses, misdemeanors, minor non-traffic accidents, a combination of minor and misdemeanor charges and some felonies. The number of offenses a person has is also taken into consideration. If a person has several DUI’s or if the individual is on parole, probation or another type of restraint, they will probably be ineligible.
