I am currently putting together my WOCS packet for 153A. I will have to put in for 4 separate moral waivers. All incidences were from before I joined the Army in 2007 (all incidences were in 2004 and 2005). I received a waiver for all incidents in question when I initially enlisted. Since I have joined I have not gotten into any trouble and have my security clearance. My question is should I be concerned of possible denial of waivers since there are 4?

Better to tell the truth and take your medicine than to have it surface at a later date and be the reason you were dropped from the course for not sharing any and all information. Heck they may even tell you that this information has no bearing on your eligibility to apply for WOC School. I would tell you to be the very best you can be once you graduate spiritually, physically and mentally. It may seem like an old motto but really "Be all that you can be" Your performance evaluations will tell them everything they want and need to know about their decision to let you into the course. If you have truly put this egregious behavior behind you then I wish you the very best of luck in all that you do.

I just got selected to fly last month. I needed a waiver for a juvenile arrest for skateboarding in which they charged me with a felony. I’m currently an Apache mechanic now and I know the Army is really hurting for aviators. They approve waivers based on the needs of the Army so I believe you have a real good chance of being approved especially if your incidents were before you joined.

Check with your in-service recruiter. Since you already have/had a waiver to enlist, you might not need a new waiver. If you do, it will be the one that goes through the review prior to board- but the board won't see them.

Make sure that download and review the sample packet on the WOFT website. it has all the key points they look for like the type of offense, time since offense, and most importantly admitting responsibility and showing how those learning experiences have made you a better person/soldier.

Good luck!
