Hello, I am currently serving in the military with TS/SCI eligibility. A few months ago I had an incident where another service member, a friend, assaulted me to a point of notable injury. Alcohol was involved, and I made a lot of bad decisions including lying to my command and civilian law enforcement about what actually happened. Eventually I came around and told my command the truth about what happened after a month, and they justly proceeded with UCMJ (NJP/Article 15) and administrative separation for what they considered a serious offense.Since then, I have explained why the incident occurred and voluntarily sought help from mental health professionals to address alcohol-related and stress-related concerns.
As my separation approaches, I have the intention of using my eligibility in the civilian contracting sector. However, there are a few concerns that I have:
Should I notify the job that I am applying for that I have an open incident report? Or should I wait until my incident report closes?
If the DoD CAF determines that my eligibility should be revoked, how will I be notified to make a rebuttal?
Based on my offense, does anyone think that my eligibility will be revoked? I have made a lot of progress addressing underlying concerns, and I hope that if I receive a statement of reasons it will be enough to justify retaining my clearance.
