To be quite frank, drug use while holding a clearance as well as visiting a soapy shop in Thailand as a young Marine. I reported it during my e-QIP and was 100% honest with my investigator during the whole process.
All incidents happened around 6 years ago and have not had had any involvement since.
Half of me is considering just denying the Secret position due to the fact I’m pretty positive I would get denied.
I would much rather just complete the SF85 for the NACI as I would have nothing to report due to the time period. However:
Are the requirements the same for the SF85 and SF86 for suitability? I would imagine no since they are vastly different?
If I deny the Secret position will they just use that investigation that was completed for the Secret for the SF85?
I imagine they will reference the SF86 at some point if I just go the NACI SF85 route, can they and would they deny employment due to factors outside of the timeframe?
I understand I put myself in this situation and was honest and forthcoming through out the process. At this point I just want to get my foot in the door with the federal government and want to pick the route that will give me the best chance at obtaining a position.
