If you have fallen behind on your credit card payments (due to unemployment and nothing more), are you disqualified from becoming an Army officer? Even if your debts are due to necessities like gas, groceries, auto repair and medical care, and not things like gambling, big ticket items, alcohol, tobacco, etc.?

    A bad credit rating will not disqualify you from being an Army officer, however, it WILL probably disqualify you for attaining a security clearance, and getting an active duty posting without a clearance will be difficult, if not impossible. I would suggest doing all you can prior to entry to clear up any outstanding debt.
