I have had a TS/SCI for more than a decade. Recently a series of events-- family health, personal health, everything related to COVID, current employment conditions, family issues-- happened within a one-week period in such a way that I felt compelled to consider suicide. I was admitted to the hospital, and VOLUNTARILY entered care for three days. VOLUNTARILY.
The US Military is NOT my sponsor; they have nothing to do with my status as a Cleared Civilian. However, somehow my Command (I am part of the Guard/Reserves) found out about my hospitalization and “flagged” my Clearance in JPAS. It was recently reviewed (no issues) in March of 2020. Now it is July of 2020 and my civilian employer is now stating that they do not want to go through the process of investigation, and my TS/SCI is effectively due to be revoked since the US Military (not my sponsor) will not hold my TS/SCI.
I am employed as a civilian due to my TS/SCI, acquired by civilian employers.
The US Military flagged me in JPAS after somehow finding out about my VOLUNTARY check in to a hospital. I am in no way ashamed of this, nor do I believe it is something that should be considered as a reason to lose my Clearance. My Clearance was flagged in JPAS WHILE I WAS IN THE HOSPITAL. I had no way to contact any FSO, Security manager, or my Sponsor in order to explain what was going on-- there was NEVER an opportunity to self-report or in any way address the issue.
So now I am potentially losing my job; I am very likely losing my TS/SCI Clearance, and the US Military is unwilling to assist since I do not NEED a TS/SCI to perform my Military duties.
