I have tried entering the military almost 3 years ago for the marines and wasn't able to get in because of drug use in my past. I am thinking of getting in again but the army this time. Some one said that the documents for my marine enlistment would be gone by now and I can start fresh and tell them I never did drugs. Even my recruiter says in will not be in my history. But I'm having a moment of doubt and want to be truthful. Should I try to say I never did drugs? Will it show up in when I goto meps in another state? Thanks

During your security clearance they will interview people from your life and past. Someone will sequel. Do not lie. Find another career.

Lie at your own risk.

If you get caught in a lie, you think your recruiter who tells you to lie about your drug use is going to back you up?

Further down the line as you advance they will do a more thorough investigation for a secret clearance. If they missed it at MEPS, chances are they will catch it later.
