Careers: Military--Army, Navy, Airforce, Marines, Coast Guard/Army En-listment


Sir, I am getting my past 2 drug charges expunged or sealed from my records. One was when I was a juvinile and one was when I was 18, I have made mistakes but for past two years I have gotten my head on straight the drugs were marijuana no hard drugs, and only simple possesions charges. When these are both sealed will I be able to enlist? Or am I going to be denied even with expunement? I scored high on asvab and am in very good physical health, Please I would appriciate any and all advice and help thank you,

Yes, but because these are considered "minor" offenses.  It has nothing to do with your record being expunged or sealed.  The FBI investigates for the military and they are permitted to view anything, sealed or expunged makes no difference.
I think you will have no difficulty if you join the Army.  Each branch of the Service had different entry requirements.  The Marines will not even consider you.  The AF will be extremely difficult.  The Navy might.
