Why every veteran should know what's in their military service records
from Clearance Jobs
If I had a dollar for every time I've heard a security clearance holder say, "I had no clue that was in my file," I'd be a rich man. The context varies — human resources files, security databases, law enforcement records, etc. — but the surprise is rarely a good one. Common examples include an old disciplinary write-up, a long-forgotten security infraction or a police report with highly unflattering details about the subject. Military service records are reviewed as a standard component of security clearance background investigations, so it behooves every veteran seeking subsequent employment as a cleared contractor to know precisely what investigators will be seeing.
