    I know I am old and out of date but I can't help wondering about all the concerns around security clearances...

    In my day, I got an extremely high level clearance for my engineering job with the DoD. All they wanted (in my opinion was the truth and nothing but the WHOLE truth). I had to put down ever where I lived (only one place for me -easy), All tickets, infractions (many not so easy), if I did or had done drugs (even if I didn't get caught), places of employment, etc. Once filled out I never worried, they called all my friends, family and neighbors, even the ones that knew I wasn't that good of a boy. I got my clearance not because I was a clean cut all-american boy , but because I told the whole truth on my form. The same thing happened for my brother (the song "sex, drugs, and rock and roll" was written for him). He was kicked off campus (dorm area as a junior -was going to get kicked out of school but a 4.0 in the hardest major saved him) . He also got extremely high clearance because for the work he does. He also told the truth and nothing but the whole truth.

    My question is has it changed to where only clean cut all-american types can get clearance or is still about people who can be trusted?

    SA cadets, ROTC scholarship winners this thread by no means gives you have a pass on your behavior. It just means that if you are 110% honest on you SC you will have no issue, however your SC and cadet record better be in agreement. And that record better be clean, cut all-american!
