Old Navy BGO
- Jan 5, 2012
i am very anxious to know these answers as I would lay down my LIFE for my country and would be HONORED to serve. I have made mistakes in the past have vowed to never repeat them. um, i also scored a 97 on the asvab if for some reason that would help my case
1.) can you join the navy if you have done lsd- not abused it but used it twice?
2.) how long do records stay at MEPS?
3.) can you join the navy or the navy rotc if you have been kicked out of the marine corps dep?
4.) will another branch know if you confessed to doing drugs at meps but never tested positive?
u said u were a midshipmen so if you don't know the ansers to these questions would you be able to ask your superior and/or local recruiter? it would be very much appreciated
These really aren't questions that a current Midshipman, or their chain of command can answer. If you are contemplating applying to the Naval Academy, I would suggest reaching out to Admissions directly, with all details, and ask them whether it is possible to get admitted. with this history.
From the nature of your questions (i.e. how long do records stay, or will another branch know...?), it appears that you would like this to stay under the radar. If you want to have any chance of serving, you have to OWN the problem, it cannot be hidden or covered up, and the long term consequences of lying, either directly or by ommission, are far more serious than the act itself.
