ARE YOU COVID-19 QUALIFIED?

WOW!  America is at WAR!  President Trump has enacted Wartime Legislation.  And you want to help? Go ahead and do it.  But there’s another side that should be considered.

We DON’T live in a perfect World and you need to really evaluate what you think you want to do.  Have you even talked to ones in?  Might want to.  Recruiting makes it all sound just fine.  Easy street.

But, on your 2nd or 3rd or 4th TOUR OVERSEAS, you will be asking-what the hell did I get myself into?  But brave person-

You wanna do it-ENLIST-then just do it.  But pick a JOB you gonna enjoy doing!  But for all of you that already been in-

You suddenly feel that Spirit of Bravado again and you decide to RE-ENLIST!

But Re-Enlistment does cause major family disruptions that often times destroy family relationships causing Divorce.  But you don’t care because why?  Why DON’T you care no more?  These are serious reasons NOT TO JOIN.

But one thing must also be sadly revisited, how does the US Government remember you?

Great Service or was that past Military RECORD better left alone to continue gathering more dust on a file better not re-opened?

Why?

Additional information may have been added since that Discharge.  Such as Civilian Law Enforcement Records.

These are just thoughts for those still feeling the sting of a past Act they may have done or had another one do for them…
