Recruiting Question

So I'm currently in the process of applying for Marine OCS, and I've been getting as much info as possible from the internet along with the recruiter in my area.

When it comes to criminal history, I'm getting two different answers.

The internet resources are telling me to disclose EVERYTHING that I've ever been involved in because if, later down the road I need top secret clearance(which I will need for my desired MOS), they find something then it could be grounds for discharge. And not to differentiate between expunged and current records, because if it's ever happened they'll find it.

When I was talking with my recruiter he told me that if it's expunged and there haven't been any continuing incidents, then it's like it never happened, and not to even mention it.

Who should I listen to?

That's what I'm thinking, and it wasn't anything major. I was put on probation for 6 months for some BS. But thanks for the advice
You do realize the likely hood of getting your desired MOS is pretty slim, right? As a butter bar, you can get assigned to any unit the USMC needs. What MOS are you shooting for, anyways?

If it was enough to get probation over, you should probably mention it. Most get denied/lose their clearance because of financial woes.

Funny thing...I did my MEPS in Pittsburgh. I still hate that stupid duck walk...
I realize that it's unlikely, but I'd rather not get it and have it than get it and not have it...if you know what I mean. And I'm shooting for Ground Intelligence Officer. I haven't done MEPS yet though, they said that they'd set me up probably for the week after Thanksgiving.
