Hi guys! I have a question regarding the process on joining Rotc. I am a current freshman sociology major with concentration on societal philosophy. I want to take 100 and 200 level lower división Rotc courses to better myself for the future to come. The main goal is for me to serve as an enlisted chaplains aid or supply specialist. Therefore rotc would be to help me get acustom to military traditions and social enviroment. However, i do have a few trumped up juvenile charges from 4-5 years ago. Wont go into my life story, just keep in mind i am morally and mentally decent(modestly). They are all waiverable, but together they seem very difficult. Rotc is supposedly suppose to help my enlistment favor. The military is where i want to be as well as what i believe i am called to do. To serve God and country with my mind and body. My question, without further ado is, does rotc do DOD background checks on non contracted, non scholarship cadets? I have heard that they do only local background checks, but my récord is sealed for local non government checks. Can i still take these courses as electives? I will be asking in person, but i know getting a second opinión is always better then none. Thanks people!
