Military recruiters are notorious for telling prospective recruits to withhold any prior drug use.  If a recruit is later considered for a TS clearance, an SF-86 is required.  The recruit unfortunately follows the recruiter's advice and fails to list past drug use, as required on the SF-86.  During the background investigation, former neighbors, classmates, friends, and employers are interviewed.  That's when the past drug use is identified.  The more individuals who confirm the drug use, the more credible the information is.  Since the recruit has already submitted the SF-86, the form has been falsified.  Not only has the recruit now committed a felony, but infrequent past drug use that might not otherwise be a disqualifier for a TS clearance is now irrelevant.  The recruit is held accountable for falsifying the SF-86, not the idiot recruiter who gave him the advice.  Blaming it on the recruiter is not an acceptable excuse.  Now that you've been cautioned, make your decision accordingly.

So, apparently, military recruiters have about the same level of integrity as those from Langley? Roll Eyes
  

What do we call it when every employee of the Agency's Office of Security
and Office of Personnel drowns in the Potomac?   A great beginning!

The best intelligence community employee is a compromised IC employee!

Apparently this holds true for recruiters in the military, just like those from Langley.

Don't forget that, in any case, the recruiter isn't the person that will adjudicate your suitability for TS/SCI, nor run your BI. Grin
