Default To the US Army with Asylum

Hi everybody,
I'm in the US on Asylum for unlimited time and next month I'm applying for my Green Card.
According to my information, every year limited amount of GC is given to the people who are on Asylum. It might take me more than 3 years to get my GC. I want to join the US army is there any ways to accelerate GC process or receive it during the service. Your answer would be much appreciated
Thanks

Sorry. Can't tell you a thing about joining while on asylum status. Call a recruiting office & have them do some research for you. Maybe by letting someone know about your desire to enlist your status will be put on a priority basis. (?)

Otherwise you'll just have to wait until you receive your green card.

If you're really serious about joining & are willing to wait then now is a good time to start preparing your body & mind. Get into a good physical training habit & study for the ASVAB. Physical requirements for the Armed Forces & ASVAB study guides along with practice tests can be found on the web.

Use this time to better your chances of getting into the Army while making it easier on yourself once you're in.
