I am 23 and recently decided I would like to enlist in the navy. I am looking towards a job as “air rescue swimmer”, which requires a security clearance. I have serval tickets and have been arrested twice before. Once for driving with a suspended license in which I forgot to appear in court for. So I turned myself in, bailed myself out, and was released the same day. I believe the judge was pretty nice and I paid a nominal fine and that was the end of it. The second time I was arrested for assault and battery under a false accusation. I was excepted into pre-trial intervention. I did 15 community service hours paid a nominal fine and the charges were dismissed by the state. I also have like 7 tickets all for different reasons like speeding and no registration.Three of them were dismissed by a judge and non involved any serious offense like violence, drugs, etc. My question is am I completely naive to think that I would get a security clearance? I spoke with a Air Force recruiter a year ago which is one of the hardest branches to get into from my understanding. And was told I would only be able to get security clearance for “mechanical jobs”, and should go talk to a Army or Navy recruiter. So again am I fool to think that I would have a chance at become a Air rescue swimmer?
