why?


well one would need a greencard (+various checks) and thats about it what i hear.
but one's current military rank wouldn't count
one would end up doing the basics all over again..

so why?

It doesn't matter why.

IMO your first point of contact should be the US Army recruiting website and secondly, speak to a recruiter by voice or email.

They're the experts and will be able to steer you onto the right path.

Good luck if you go ahead with it pal.

The only way you'll be allowed to enlist in the US Military, any branch, is to have a Green Card which shows that you're a legal resident. You'll have to research how to go about it but I believe you have to have a sponsor & a job waiting for you before you're allowed to get over here. Once you have the green card you'll be allowed to enlist & the Army has an accelerated program to become a citizen. Once you're a US citizen you'll be allowed to get a security clearance & go into an MOS that requires one.

Good luck & thanks for inquiring.
