    I am looking at joining the Air Force, and the jobs I want require a secret clearance. My questions for those who have one and have gone through the process is did they ever pull your medical records that you know of?

    A secret is granted after a fairly basic background check, it isn't until TS and above that they will start looking into every little detail of your life. They are more apt to check medical records during the enlistment process if something comes up during the physical tests at MEPS. If you have something in your record that wasn't disclosed before you join and they find out you can be kicked out for fraudulent enlistment.

    Just be honest with them and you'll be fine. If they ask for any medical records then it is in your best interest to disclose them.

    I'm curious about people calling the TS harder than the S. The paperwork on your part is identical. The process is harder on their part, not yours.

    it's "harder" to get

    the background checks etc

    that said if your job and billet doesn't require a clearance they're not going to give it to you let alone bother with the work to research it.

    You don't lose your clearance, it becomes inactive. Once you hit your five year mark then yes, it is gone.. but the records are still there.

    I did disclose everything I know of, along with all medical records required. I was just worried there may have been something I am unaware of.

    You keep your a secret for ten years, and a top secret for five. If it goes inactive they have to reactivate it, but its still there as long as you are still in the five/ten year window.

    The only cool thing about a secret clearence is acess to the SIPR and getting on computers with little stickers that say "this medium is classified SECRET" that make you feel like a special agent.

    Dude, shut it. Its about being able to do your job.

    Also, you should not be giving out your clearance level online.

    Yeah, I could really careless about having a clearance, but it just so happens the jobs I want require one, so I'd need it.

    at first i thought this was silly, but after doing some research you are right! advertising your clearance level is a good way to have it taken away!

    turbo can you please edit out my comment quote in your post?
