I am currently trying to join the Army National Guard as a Signal Officer. I’m terrified, however, of the Top Secret background check. A few years back, I tried to get hired as a Police Officer. 2 Agencies polygraphed me. The first one discontinued me after the Polygraph but never explained why. The second one also discontinued me after the Polygraph. They didn’t give me an explanation but I made what was probably a stupid admission AFTER the test was over. The admission was that at 11 years old, I was curious and fiddled with my dog’s penis. It was just that one time and I never did anything like that again. I chock it up to just childhood curiosity.
Will this come up if I go for a Top Secret position and will it kill my chances? If this DQ’d me, would my unit find out the reason?
