it comes in cycles. actually they still are accepting some felony waivers but it depends on your job classification or m.o.s. on a case by case basis. if you committed a theft at 18 and you are about to graduate med school at 30 now chances are you stand a good chance of getting a waiver. if you committed a robbery at 21 and you are about to graduate from sally beauty academy then chances are you won't get a waiver right now. of course all of this could change at the drop of a dime. all it takes is one real war.

The Army stopped issuing waivers for recruits with adult felony convictions for crimes such as assault, arson and robbery in 2009...

Their requirements and what they will accept will change from time to time.

this is BS. i am an army officer in afghanistan right now and i will tell you that the army is NOT accepting or granting waivers for many misdemeanors, time now; let alone felonies. as of june 2011, the army and HRC is starting a process to cut the active duty force by 49,000 personnel. that means E-4s with 6 years or more will be released. and overweight soldiers failing PT tests and not meeting tape requirements are a thing of the past. too many people have been camping out in the army and having it good thru this recession/bad economy and the government isnt having it any longer. thankfully, this doesnt pertain to officers, but for enlisted folks, enlisting is going to be much harder in the foreseable future, because the wars in iraq and afghanistan are going to come to an end NL than 2014 - by way of the afghan constitution.

"Thankfully, this doesn't pertain to officers"? So it is OK if officers camp out, don't meet weight requirements and it is easier for them to enlist? I do not understand what you are trying to say.
