Here are a couple of links to get you started..
http://www.palmcenter.org/press/dadt/releases/military_enlistment_of_felons_has_doubled (from back in 2007—has link to one of the studies on it)

From April 2009:
http://www.upi.com/Top_News/2009/04/19/Army-stops-issuing-drug-felony-waivers/UPI-27951240164494/

thanks for the links.It is always so much better to use links someone else provides.

here btw is the answer to why it was stopped, per your link

” The economic downturn has improved the quality of U.S. Army recruits, and the service has stopped accepting felons and drug abusers, officials said.”
