Doubtful - but that: Doesn't mean a 100% no go. Was it part of a brief issue that completely resolved? Just suicidal ideation or more? "history of suicidal behavior, including gesture(s) or attempt (s) (300.9) , or history of self-mutilation, is disqualifying." per standards. Regardless, you will need a current comprehensive psychiatric evaluation with clean bill of health to even be considered for a waiver.

Likely not: A serious suicide attempt can be indicative of major depression, which, if diagnosed can be a major impediment to being allowed to serve.
