I have 2 sons that are incarcerated and 1 to be released very soon and his dreams as a child was and is still to be able to serve his country of America ,U.S.A. But I recently was told that he may still have a chance to do this? Just the thought of this made MY day seam a little more upwards in a foremost way to speak. So if anyone has any answers or a direction that I may lead my son that has become a man in the Ca. Correctional Institutions, the right path towards serving and completing a family love and dream to serve the U.S.A. , please don't resit to tell me the ALL Foremost Truth! Thank You

Almost any felony level conviction will prevent service in the US Armed Forces, State Defense Forces, CAP, and the USCGAux.
I've seen waivers for misdemeanors during the hey-day of the GWOT recruitment drives but I don't ever recall one for felonies, except maybe a DUI.
Sorry, but I don't think they can.
With the upcoming draw down in troop numbers and defense cuts I do not think we will see very many waivers going forward for misdemeanors. I do not think we will see them for age or health either like we have seen since 9-11.
If your son is truly reformed there are other ways he can serve his community but military service is not going to be one of them.
