    There's not going to be a whole lot you can do. The drug charge alone would have required a waiver, which is not easy to get. But an FTA shows a lack of: maturity, follow through, willingness to own up to and pay for mistakes and ability to follow orders that the Army is pretty much going to pass on. You can try talking to a recruiter about your situation but I don't think you'll like what they say.

    It's a complete myth that there's some avenue to enter the military to avoid going to jail. The military will not take you while you are on probation or other restriction.
    You certainly can not join with pending criminal charges. You need to get a lawyer and appear on the original charge and hope the sanctions for FTA are waived (it's not clear where you are in this situation).
