Update guys, I got my twic card with no issue! So anyone with my kind of issue, you have hope!

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

Funny story:

Went to deliver to an Army post. Go into the guard shack for the background check. A couple drivers already in there with one being an owner operator.

Takes a few minutes so the three of us were sitting and chatting in a room just off the check-in window.

Shortly a few MPs walked in and called the name of the owner operator. He stood up and they asked him to step outside for a minute ... where they turned him around, put his hands behind his back and cuffed him!

The other driver and myself just stared at each other wide-eyed then the other driver said, "Geez, maybe I should leave now!"

Owner Operator:

An owner-operator is a driver who either owns or leases the truck they are driving. A self-employed driver.

I had a couple when I got back from Iraq and got my twic and hazmat but it was ~15 years ago for me.

I dealt with involuntary commitment over 9 years ago. For mental health reasons, I did not consent to this, but it was needed for me as it was a bad time in my life. Now this is on my medical record, such things as owning a Gun I cant do. I want to apply for a Twic card (Transportation Worker Identification Credential). For a future Job. On the website: https://www.tsa.gov/disqualifying-offenses-factors it says "or if he/she has been involuntarily committed to an inpatient facility for mental health or psychiatric reasons.". Now this happened 9 years ago, and its not something that will ever happen again. (its regarding self harm not eating, and drug use, non-violent).

My dilemma now is should I apply for a TWIC card and see if I get denied? OR Should I try to get this medical record expunged, afterward apply for TWIC card. I'm not sure if I need a lawyer for this, is it best if I do get one? Which option seems reasonable. By chance can they not deny me as this was over 9 years ago? And I did go through treatment, and counseling. No such thing has happened to me sense then. As well I am not taking any med's relating to this incident.

HAZMAT:

Hazardous Materials

Explosive, flammable, poisonous or otherwise potentially dangerous cargo. Large amounts of especially hazardous cargo are required to be placarded under HAZMAT regulations
