  • Prior Service Question

    i have searched and haven't found any answers on the subject. Being prior Service I received a field grade article 15 for underage drinking while active duty. Because it is in my OMPF would this hold me up from getting a Seal Contract?

    Not necessarily, but we can't rule it out. The investigative authority will make a final determination. On our side, as long as the article was received more than one year ago, we consider it history. We look for what you've done since then, and if there's a pattern of behavior.

      This question is about prior service.

      I am 35 years old with a degree in Mechanical engineering. I got a 93 on my asvab.

      I haven't had anyone test me for PST Scores, and I'm not even sure I am eligible for SWCC or SEAL, but would like to do some sort of Special Warfare.

      I was an intelligence specialist from 2001-2005 honorable discharge, RE-R1 enlistment code.

      MY Self given PST Scores are

      9:51 swim
      100 push
      100 sit-up
      22 pull-up
      8:30 run

      Do I have any options?

        You are not eligible for special operations ratings. You could come back in a support capacity, such as IS. They go to war with the platoons.

              Age waivers are hard to come by. Don't expect Navy recruiters to be cooperative. Recommend you pursue related jobs, like SWCC or EOD, which you are still age-eligible. Good luck.

                Mr. Williams, are the current age limits for SWCC/EOD vs.SEAL different because SEAL is harder on the body or is this due to supply/demand reasons?

              Physical. Experience has shown us that a candidate older than 28 on average has more difficulty in recovering from the wear and tear on the body.
