I heard on the news today that the Pentagon is ordering for agressive recruiting in the Marine Corps and the Army. Lucky me I guess? I'll have to confirm the story but if its true then damn am I happy

I haven't heard that one either, I was recruited out of Detroit and we had a huge amount of people that were rejected due to troubles with the law (Its Detroit, think about it, great training ground for urban warfare). I can say one thing, I see more billboards in Flint and Detroit for recruiting for the Corps than anyother city I visit including Chicago and Dallas.

I heard that from a Gunnery Sgt who recruits up in like Minnesota or something. The 'logic' behind it was that there are more people being recruiting down south (especially in Texas apparently as I've heard that the San Antonio MEPS and Dallas MEPS recruit the most or among the top RS's) and it's easier to find recruits, whereas up north there's more work involved so when a recruiter DOES put a packet for a waiver in, its competing with less people and therefor is easier to be approved. But again this is just secondhand knowledge that was passed on to me Thanks for all the comments though. If you guys/girls can think of ANYTHING that will help, I'm very dedicated to joining and am willing to go to great lengths to ensure that I am given the opportunity to serve my country

security force background check is done when you get to security force school in chesapeake not before you get in. I had an assault charge and still served 2 years in security force.
