Here is a little backround info. Im from Ireland, I moved to the US over a year ago and have since joind the Army as an Infantryman. My reasoning for this is because I want to go for special forces eventually, taking this route would give me necessary experience and training for spec ops selection.
Before I came to the US I got a DUI (I know, very stupid). When I told my recruiter this he told me not to say anything because they cant track that information, as it was in a different country. S thats what I did, I kept my mouth closed and successfully joined the Army.
Here is my issue. I need a secret security clerance to be eligible for special forces. From what Ive heard security clearences are conducted the same way in the military as they are in civilian world.
Would whomever is conducting my security clearance find out about my DUI in Ireland? Would they contact my old school and ex-local police station in Ireland?
