  • Disorderly Conduct

    (June 8th) I was recently charged with my first and only disorderly conduct complaint. I'm coming up on my end of enlistment in the Coast Guard (August 29th) with a general discharge. I'm not sure how it will shake out on their end but I'm going to have to wait to put in a package for SWCC.

    Are there any members who have been in a similar situation? Will a few months out of military service change the application process? And, am I able to apply for SWCC without getting booted into the fleet and getting stuck there? Thank You!

    i know that the military wont care if you have a misdemeanor as long as you haven't had any law encounters for 1 whole year and you arent a felon. you should be fine

      The military cares about misdemeanors. A waiver may be required, which would be up to the recruiting district CO to approve. Then there is your general discharge, which means you re-enlistment code may not be looked at favorably. Then there is your time in service, which I believe you mentioned in another post is 8 years. That's more than the desired 6 years or less. I recommend you speak with a Navy recruiter immediately to assess your opportunity. Good luck.
