Do I have to get a drug crime expunged to join the military? 4 Answers as of August 03, 2010

I was arrested for drug possession about 8 months ago but have been sober ever since and completed a residential treatment program. I cleared all the charges and paid all the fees. Should I try to get those past issues expunged if I want to join the military? Is it worth the money or are they going to find out anyway?

Expungement will help you in future employment, and is probably required for you to join the military. If serious about pursuing this, feel free to contact me for legal help.
