I JOINED THE ARMY RESERVES IN 1991. I WAS ON THE SPLIT OPTION PROGRAM BECAUSE OF COLLEGE. I WENT TO BASIC IN THE SUMMER OF 92 AND WAS TO ATTEND AIT THE FOLLOWING SUMMER. HOWEVER, I CONTRACTED MONO WHICH IS AN INFECTIOUS DISEASE AND WAS NOT ALLOWED UNTIL THE FOLLOWING SUMMER. I STILL ATTENTED MONTHLY DRILLS FOR 5 MONTHS UNTIL AN OFFICER SAW MY NAME TAG AND ASKED "WHAT ARE YOU DOING AT DRILLS YOU WERE DISCHARGED 5 MONTHS AGO." ANYWAY, I RECEIVED A MAILER FROM NEWDAYUSA FOR A VA HOMEOWNERS LOAN. AM I A QUALIFIED FOR THIS BENEFIT?

I was reviewing my SF86 and I noticed that my recruiter didn't

I was reviewing my SF86 and I noticed that my recruiter didn't add in all my residences and the dates are wrong. He lost my original packet I submitted and I assume he went based off memory. I already had my interview at MEPS and presumably the investigation is already underway. Is there anyone I can talk to to amend my SF86? I rushed through the process treating it the same as the other hundreds of documents I went through. I can provide references for the residences, although I'm not sure about some of their addresses and phone numbers and stuff or how to reach out to them. I really don't want to fail to gain clearance and lose my MOS / ability to join the army over this, and I'm sweating pretty hard right now.

I have just become aware that my son has omitted medical information that would have excluded him from being able to join the Army based on what an army recruiter had supposedly told him to do. I do know he was denied entrance from the Navy and the Air Force because of his medical history. He has taken his physical and been sworn in, going to boot camp at the end of October of 2015. Based in the information I have read he would have been excluded from the Army as well. Not wanting him to be injured or possibly injure anyone else- who do we contact above the local recruiter?
