Hey guys, just swore in on Tuesday for 3d1x2. I am filling out my application for the top secret security clearance and was wondering if they actually do go and talk to all if these people I am listing? It doesn't matter, I have nothing to hide and they will all have only positive things to say about me, but I'm just curious.
I was also wondering if they will review internet sites and forums like Facebook.

Do the pictures show you just getting sloppy drunk and having fun? Or getting sloppy drunk and selling secrets to terrorists? If it's the later you have an issue, but the first on is no different than 80% of the current AF as it is.

Yeah, if there's a picture of you, slumped over a table with an envelope labeled "secret" in your hands and a dude with dark glasses, smoking a cigar and wearing a turban is sitting next to you.... delete it

I guess the ANG is a little different than AD. My AFSC requires a top secret clearance and I haven't gotten anything to fill out yet... maybe I get it later or my recruiter forgot. Hmmm...

This may be the first time we've ever agreed on anything.

Oh, you'll get it. If not in basic or tech school, then your first duty assignment. It'll just make your wait at your first assignment if you start later. Used to be a DD Form 398, but now it's done in eQuip. You're not getting your TS without it.

It would be in your favor if those pictures nothing illegal was happening.

Unless you're Jean-Luc, I think Facebooks TOS says "Blood in, Blood out. The internet is how shall you say...La Cosa Nostra." :P

Maybe this, but I haven't made my way over to Facebook, so I'm not sure. I think I would just leave it. Not good a good look to be omitting stuff. Your choice.

If you posted it at one point they already know. Just look at it like that. There is nothing private about facebook.
