What is the name of your state? Texas
Forgive me if this subject has been beat to death, but I really need an answer.
I'm 33 years old, and when I was 18 I was Early Seperated from the Navy with a reenlistment code of RE4. I have been wanting to reenlist for a number of years now, but this code kills it. I want to know if it is possible to have this changed.
In 1991 I went into the Navy under the DEP. When I spoke to my recruiter I told her everything, and I mean everything. I planned on making a career out of the Navy and wanted to go in honestly. She told me "Don't tell them at MEPS" about the fact that I had tried (one time) cocaine about a year and a half before enlisting. I already had a few waivers, so I didn't understand the reason for the deception. So I get to MEPS and I tell them there. They tell me "Don't tell them at boot camp". Of course, when I get to boot camp, the Moment of Truth came up, and I told them the truth. For this I was seperated. I do not feel I did anything wrong, but that does not matter. All that matters to me at this point is can this situation be remedied? All I want to do is join the Army to go and fight, but at the least I would like to clear my name. Somebody please give me some hope if it is to be had. TIA
