Really sucks i thought the waiver process was if you were convicted of a crime which i have never been. Does it make a difference if its expunged at all and or what can i expect with the waiver process? Also my credit isnt very good either.

You might think that the military would look favorably on a guy who will fight when he needs to. But, apparently not so much anymore.



Seems to me that you were wrongly charged, and your actions were commendable, provided of course you didn't get into this situation as a result of gross bad judgment.

No. Legally being "no guilty" is not the same as being actually innocent. Courts of law do not declare anyone innocent, only "not guilty."

Being legally not guilty doesn't meant that you actually didn't commit the crime, just that you're not criminally or legally guilty.

The waiver is just to make sure this is actually the case. Anyone can proclaim their innocence, but arresting officer records can show insubordinate, disrespect, combativeness, and the dismissal can show that there was a lack of evidence of guilt (vs evidence of innocent) and the Coast Guard gets to decide if they want to hire someone based on the totality of all the documents submitted and full picture of the events as they went down.

Joining the Coast Guard is not a right. The Coast Guard retains the power to decide who to hire.

OP you should go through the process! There are a lot of good military people who had to get waivers. Life happens! Don't give up without a fight!

- You will need the arrest records so the commander can see how you treated the responding police officers and their assessment of the situation
- You will need the full court records
- You will need a personal statement explaining everything about the situation
- A letter from the family member you saved corroborating your story may help
- If your credit shows delinquencies that can create a whole second waiver. Needing two waivers probably means the Coast Guard is out for you. It is the hardest branch to join. Fix your credit first!
- You will need a letter of recommendation from a teacher or employeer
- You will need to impress your recruiter with dedication and ethics

Good luck!

Military Law
What is military law?

Military law is the body of law that governs the members of the armed forces. The application of military law to members of the military reflects a recognition that such individuals are subject to different duties and expectations than civilian citizens.

What is the system of military law?

United States military law is found in the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), Title 10 of the United States Code. It establishes military legal rules and procedures applicable to individuals in the military. The military law embodied in the UCMJ applies to the armed services at home and abroad, active and non-active. The coverage of the law is extensive, ranging from insubordination to theft. Additionally, the UCMJ implements many international laws of war which apply during an armed conflict.

The UCMJ establishes a separate military court system, the "courts-martial," in which trials involving military service personnel take place. Executive orders published in the Manual for Courts-Martial implement the provisions of the UCMJ on courts-martial. Various forms of military tribunals and commissions comprise the courts-martial system. The three most common forms of military tribunals are found in the UCMJ: General Courts-Martial, Special Courts-Martial, and Summary Courts-Martial.
