I entered the Delayed Entry Program for the US Navy, while a senior, in high school (2002-2003). However, I was not able to graduate by the end of the school year. A while later, I received a discharge letter. I'm not sure if it counted as a dishonorable, or not. If I remember correctly, it did state I would be eligible for reenlistment, after 6 years. Anyway, I'm wanting to purchase a firearm, for self defense, as well as pursue a CCW permit. I know a dishonorable discharge prohibits a person from purchasing a firearm. Before I go through the whole BG check, etc, I wanted to see if not graduating high school, while enlisted in DEP, constitutes as dishonorable.8 Answers1 day ago

Nope. Just like people wearing military surplus are not “stealing valor”. Stolen valor is wearing or claiming medals that you are not entitled to. If I had my father’s Purple Heart from Korea, that is not stolen valor. Claiming it as if I had been awarded the medal, would be stolen valor.5 Answers4 days ago

I want to apply for a Travel Clerk job at AUTEC. It looks like a nice, basic. but the listing says : "Must currently work on existing AUTEC contract in order to be eligible for this position." UMM, so I have to be working for AUTEC to get a job at AUTEC? I don't get it. Because why would anyone already working for them apply for what seems like a "low level" job (compared to the scientists,etc) So how exactly do you get eligible?5 Answers5 days ago

I was an active poster here years ago in the military section, used to be called Andrew, renamed to this when the trolls started making random conspiracy theories about me. Joined around the time when Ninefinger, Weasel McWeasel, Mrs. jvb, Wine Wine U Dirty Skunk, Reigon, Michael the pilot, Brian the Army cavalry guy, Daniel the air force officer, Navycrab, Michael the crazy conspiracy dude etc. were all active. I've kept reading here over the years, and while most of this section became a dumpster fire I always appreciated seeing all you regular posters dedicate your time to helping newcomers.
Yahoo Answers is an awful forum of insanity, but there are a handful of good people here I'll miss seeing around.
I learned a lot from you guys that I've remembered over the years, since I knew almost no military people in real life, and it's part of what led me to my current situation of preparing to apply for a commission as a U.S. Navy officer within the next year.
Thank you all, take care!11 Answers1 week ago
