Hi, I am a junior in high school that made one awful mistake and it is costing me a lot. I recently received informal probation from the local probation office for assisting in a burglary. I drove my "friends" at the time, to a empty house that they proceeded to rob. I accepted money that they took. I was pressured into it and my officer understands I am a good kid and made a horrible mistake which is why it went down to informal probation. I have no past history and live in a very respectable strict household. I am a good student (3.9 GPA and 1260 SAT) I run track and was in contact with West Point running related but realize my dream is now crushed by that. But I still want to serve my nation more than anything. I am in good physical shape and could probably score around 280 or higher on the PT army test. I love our nations military history and want to join as infantry. Is there anyway I could still become a ranger or special forces? please give me as much info as possible. I want to get the point across how much I want to serve and am willing to give up any high level college scholarship to serve. It is my dream to be a ranger or special forces and I will do anything that I possibly can to achieve this. Could the military understand I made an awful mistake I regret everyday and that is not a reflection of my true character and that I could make a great solider that would sacrifice it all? Sorry for long post. Just need help.
