How a Kenyan can join U.S. Army 2018

American immigration law offers multiple options for foreigners who want to live in the U.S. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service has all the options online. One can easily apply for a green card and ultimately become a U.S. citizen.

Once you acquire U.S. citizenship there are many benefits and privileges you can enjoy. Among them is becoming a U.S. army. Its important to note that holding a green card alone cannot qualify you to join U.S. army. You must be able speak and write in English fluently. Here are some of the requirements of joining U.S. army;

  • You must be at least 17-years-old and not older than 35. This applies to regular Army, reserves and the National Guard.
  • You must be in sound health.
  • You must have at least a high school diploma, though a GED may suffice.
  • You must pass the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery test.
  •  If by any chance you want to become an officer, you must be a college graduate.

Joining U.S. army as a non citizen will limit you in many ways but the good thing is that it can speed up your process of acquiring a permanent citizenship. Among the things you can’t do as a non citizen in the army are;  obtaining a security clearance or qualify for overseas assignments.

More than 100,000 immigrants have acquired permanent citizenship through military service since November 2017.
