My son was at Air Force boot camp, halfway through. He was

Hello,My son was at Air Force boot camp, halfway through. He was selected to get an Intelligence branch job and was starting the clearance process when in one interview he was asked if he had ever attempted suicide. He said he had, as a child of 12 or so (this was news to his mother and I). Based on that, the Air Force told him he could apply for a waiver and wait, or go home and apply for the waiver. Now he is being told there is no way that the waiver will be granted, after he was told yes, there is a chance. I don't know the details of what he actually did, but does not the fact that he was a child, and there was no Emergency Room visit or any kind of medical problem resulting from the attempt have any mitigating effect? He is now processing out and will be home in a few days. Assuming he would like to try to get back in, what would you advise?

I have to this question. When a private Security company

I have a follow up to this question. When a private Security company that I'm looking into applying ask you to list your military service and they get a copy of the DD214 what else would they have access to view? I was detained for questioning while inthe service by the MP's and released back to my unit. No arrest or any charges. I just had Article 15 NJP. I've had backgrounds and always been honest when completing, but want to make sure that I don't hinder myself while applying.

Please read the article attached to the link before you

Please read the article attached to the link before you continue. Is that article true regarding the army national guard?? The reason I ask is because my brother and I have spoken to are recruiters/ commanders. Clearly they are not happy that we want toback out and I don't know if there telling us things that are untrue just to get us to commit. They said if we want an entry level seperation to just go to basic and then just ask to leave and we will be sent home and be done with it all. Personally we thinkthat's a huge waist of time. Idk what type of discharge would come from that even tho were told it would be entry level seperation. They told us if we refuse to ship they will just keep re scheduling the ship date and if we don't show up to drill every monthwe would be considered AWOL. Is this true??? Or is the article I sent you true??? Cause we're supposed to ship in a couple of days and we don't want to ship if we don't have to. Your advice is going to play a major role in our decision so please don't saysomething unless your 100% sure. Thank you

How you doing sir, The reason I'm contacting you is because

How you doing sir,The reason I'm contacting you is because I have a question regarding the army national guard. Joining the guard was something I never planned to do. However, my brother talked me into it. The benefits were good and putting down the guard on any application looks good. We're supposed to ship off to basic on the 23rd of November. However, my brother is no longer interested in moving fowrard with the guard and he wants out. He could personally care less about getting a general discharge. As for me, doing the guard was something I wanted to do with him and if he's no longer interested ethier am I. But I don't want a general discharge. I know even tho it's not dishonorable it still doesn't look great. Any recommendations?? At this point I would rather just go back to school next semester and move forward with a few potential job offers I have. I don't want this to hurt my chances of getting a job in the future in the civilian world. Officially we've only been in for a l
