When a Military Security Clearance is Revoked
Because details about first-time applications for a security clearance are dealt with elsewhere on this site, our focus here will be on maintaining a military security clearance. Having this kind of security clearance is one of the most valuable parts of a person’s military service. It is given on the basis of a thorough investigation of the applicant’s eligibility for a security clearance. Therefore, the possibility of that clearance being revoked, or of any higher-level security clearance application being denied, is a matter of great importance. The military career and post-military future of such a person will be hugely impacted by this.
Seemingly Minor Reasons for Denial
There are a number of reasons an adjudicator could use in their decision to deny or revoke a military security clearance. The disqualifying reasons may appear to be relatively minor.
Among the most common reasons for denial/revocation include:
- Financial difficulties, even those that occurred many years ago
- Use of alcohol and/or illegal drugs, even if not proven
- Connections to family and/or friends in countries that may pose a security risk
- Misuse of a government computer – for example, using a social website such as Facebook or viewing YouTube or pornography while on the job
