  • Can I fax my birth certificate to a military recruiting office instead of delivering it myself?

    I recently misplaced my birth certificate and ordered a new one. I m hoping I can just fax the document to the Air Force recruiting center instead of driving an hour to deliver it myself.

    Hello. I committed juvenile sex offense when I was 15. I was wondering what my chances of joining the military are? I do know they are slim but any possible chance? I tried to get my records from the courthouse and they told me that the case was disposed of shortly after my probation ended. So I don’t even know how it ended or if it was adjudicated. I was never arrested and went to juvenile court by the way. I did not have to register as a sex offender. I was able to purchase a gun permit as well last Friday which surprised the hell out of me. I thought I would be denied even though I disclosed the info on the application. I talked to a recruiter and disclosed the information. He ran my fingerprints. He said if they don’t come back, I’m fine. If they do I might not be considered or he might have to send up a waiver. Well nothing came back. He also told me that was an fbi check. Idk how true that statement is. He wants to pick me up to take the pic at tomorrow. I’m 24, almost 25, now with the only other crime being a traffic citation. I graduated with my diploma at 17.

    Is it really true that everybody in the Army on active duty, regardless of their MOS, deploys to the middle east? I get that if you're in the Army, you should expect to deploy over to Iraq or Afghanistan or Syria or Egypt or some other place in the middle east, because you are supposed to defend the country. I've talked to a lot of people who are like "yeah, you're in the Army, so you're going to deploy to the middle east because you're in the Army" But I've also met quite a few people who have been active duty in the Army for a few years who have said they've never deployed at all. One guy I know who is a cook in a MP unit told me he has a three year contract and has so far served two years but hasn't deployed at all. I don't know his whole story, but he doesn't appear to have any injuries that would make him non-deployable. Would this guy deploy in his third and last year of his contract? So is it really true that everybody in the Army on active duty, regardless of MOS, is guaranteed to deploy? I'm not saying that I have a problem deploying, but I'm just wondering why is it that so many people say it's guaranteed when I've met multiple people who've been in for multiple years who don't seem to have anything wrong with them who haven't done it.

    I was in army training for 7 months. I got out with an honorable discharge right before I graduated AIT. I applied but got denied. I was briefed that everyone in the room was eligible to get the GI Bill, and to not let anyone say I am not otherwise (6months in plus honorable makes me eligible). The only thing I can think of is I was in the reserves, or that training time doesn t count. But I was specifically briefed that I would get it. Also, they gave me a bunch of shots when I went in. They gave me no records for them. How would I get the paperwork for that? Rediculous that I don t even know what they put in my body

  • Do you need BOTH parents to sign for you when wanting to join the Military when you are 17?

    Best answer: If parents are married then yes both parents. If divorced then it all depends on who has primary custody. If 50-50 then still both parents. Just wait until your 18 if it is something one parent doesn’t agree to.
