Read the transcript, a lot of people are freaking out for some reason but he is speaking past tense in reference to policies already undertaken by the Army so things are likely still the same just no felony waivers or any of the no go waivers. Medical waivers are likely still a go. My recruiter confirmed with me today that they are still accepting prior service and waivers but it is uncertain for how much longer.
So then I have a question...RE 2B (JKN) narrative is misconduct (got 2 articles for showing up late so I was discharged)in 1998. Ive talked to recruiters and heard everything from yes, my discharge will always be waiverable...no, its no longer waiverable but might be in the future depending on recruiting, to they dont know. Does anyone know? I dont want to waste anyones time if there is no chance of it being waived. I would prefer to have it waived for OCS, but I wouldnt have any issue going enlisted either and dropping a packette after some time goes by.
Most waivers had been on hold until the start of the new recruiting year (Oct 1st). I'm not sure if they have started accepting moral or misconduct waivers. Everything hinges on end strength and the Army started this new recruiting year with more than 4000 soldiers over strength, not to mention all the ROTC graduates that have been "on hold" until the new physical year. I required a medical waiver (approved in late Aug like a number of you) and I have been cooling my heels waiting for October to get here before I could get my rank determination from USAREC. Got the call from the recruiter this morning and get to go to MEPPS next week for MOS selection. My advice is whether or not you need a waiver; you should get your paperwork rolling now before recruiting fills up again.
I would say they are also waiting for the word from the White House. They probably don't really know what the future plans will be, but keep your chin up and just be ready to go when the light turns green. Wish I had taken my own advice.
Any new updates to the moral waiver situation for PS? here is my situation, is this situation going to be a no go right now?
I think my situation may be different for moral waivers but I am not sure. I am PS Marine. I had 3 misdemeanor arrests in 1990 for fighting two of which charges were not filed and the other was just a small fine. These three incidents happened before I went into the Marine Corps. I went into the Marine Corps in 1993 and got out in 1997. Since then I have been a law enforcement officer. Since these incidents happened before I entered the Marine Corps can they now be waived by the Army? Also I have been talking to an Army recruiter and filled out my initial paperwork which I disclosed the three incidents. He made no mention of any waiver problem. Is this situation different or will it still fall under the moral waiver that I have read have been suspended for PS applicants?
Why would you need a moral waiver if it happened before you entered the corps? That makes no sense. I think the powers that be would just look at your record from your military record onward...Since you had already been screened earlier.
