I currently hold a bachelors in Nursing with public health

I currently hold a bachelors in Nursing with public health experience. I am active duty Navy enlisted because at the time of enlistnent I was not a citizen. I had been told that once I become a citizen I could apply to the Navy nurse corps but I dont qualify for MECP program because I already have a degree and dont qualify for ODS because I dont have med surge experience and they are not taking public health nurse. I talked to an Army recruiter and I was told that they are taking Public Health Nurses for the reserve and that I could apply if my current command would let me. I still for years left of active duty obligation, is there a way to get a release to go from active duty navy and commision into the Army Nurse corps reserve?JA: Are you overseas or stateside?Customer: StatesideJA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?Customer: No I have only talked to the army recruiterJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No thats it.

Trying to go back active duty army after two years,

Trying to go back active duty army after two years, currently in the army reserve with no break in service between active and reserve. I have an honorable discharge, all 1's on my reenlist code, can pass a PT test, but receive 50percent disability for allergies, a scar from inguinal hernia surgery that the army fixed, lower back strain, haglund deformity, knee strain, and anxiety. I no longer have a problem with anything except I can't get rid of haglund deformity without surgery, and even the anxiety has went away...But I am still rated 50 percent overall for everything. Can I get back in? If not what can I do? Can I lower anything? Also for the explanation on anxiety it says "a mental condition has been formally diagnosed, but symptoms are not severe enough either to interfere with occupational and social functioning or to require continuous medication" is there anything I can do to get back in at all?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TexasJA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?Customer: I was told to talk to a recruiterJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: That should be it

My boyfriend was convicted with residential burglary. He was

My boyfriend was convicted with residential burglary. He was sent to jail for three months and was on probation after that. He was on probation for 5 years due to not being able to pay his restitution. He got off probation July 2016 without any violation. He wanted to join the service but is not sure if he will be accepted because of his criminal background. He checked online and say that he needs a moral waiver. My question is will he be able to obtain a moral waiver? and how? He's 26 years old and wanted to get his life back together.
