Basically I would say being a criminal will stop you form being employed in the Air Force. When I signed up they would not take anyone with a traffic ticket.

The reason being is you may be in a position that requires a secret or top-secret clearance with trust being the #1 issue. I held a TS clearance working my bomb dog around Presidents I.e. Air Force 1 and 2, foreign Heads of States, etc.

Yes, definitely will. In that case, it will be on a strict case by case basis. There is however, a waiver process that may allow you to enter even with certain types of law violations.
