I had to submit an SF86 when I joined the Army and my recruiter was the one who filled it out. I just sat all gullible in the chair while he asked me questions and typed answers in for me. His station was having issues with recruitment so they would lie on paper and do whatever they could to get soldiers into the military. When he asked me about prior drug use and I told him about my prior use. He said that’s fine, it’s nothing to worry about. Fast forward a few years later and I’m trying to change MOS’s and need to get a TS/SCI. I have to resubmit a new SF86 but the old one is on file saying that I have never partaken in drugs. Not really sure what to do or if I let some E6 ruin my future. I’m damn sure not about to ride that out and submit a new one falsely on purpose. My best defense is negligence and that doesn’t help at all.
Ultimately it’s my document and word but I definite didn’t have the intent to lie or deceive. Am I screwed or is there a chance I would be able to get past that?
Update #1: I’m going to go talk to JAG today to get legal counsel and protect myself. After speaking to them I’m gonna go talk with my security manager and see what I can work out as far as correcting this.
I’m gonna keep this form updated just so that anyone whoever ends up in this circumstance has some idea. I’ve seen 1 form post about something like this and it’s not really helpful at all for the soldier dealing with this kinda thing.
