Hi, I have heard a lot about lately about squaddies joining the Austrailian or New Zealand Army. Everyone seems to know someone that is in the process or has actually got in. Has anyone heard of anyone joining the American Army?
Eat meat, carry gun. Eat more meat, carry bigger Gun!

I once requestion some joining information from the spetics for my mate, as we were both seving I thought this was funny. They sent a very nice letter telling him that he would first need to leave the British Army and as he was a non-resident then they could not send him the application paper work, but if he was on Holiday over there then he could call into a local recuitment office and they would be able to help him futher.

Unless you're American or the close relative of an American, you're shit out of luck. I know, because I've done it.

You could always try and get one of the green cards set aside for the gifted. Won any Nobel Prizes recently?
Oh, that's right, they're all won by Americans 8O

ANZACs don't seem to have any problems joining the British Army, Commonwealth Citizens and all that. Would imagine they operate along similar lines in Oz

Unless you are living in America, you won't have a chance of getting in their Army (Why on earth would you want too??)

“Before us stand great citizen-Soldiers of 29 different countries,” said Casey, “and we are happy to welcome them as the newest citizens of the United States on this 230th birthday of our nation.
This is the seventh citizenship ceremony held in Iraq alone since the start of the war. And nearly 20,000 service members serving in the war on terror have taken the oath.

Sounds like it should be possible, don't you think?

That's once you're in the military. But you as a foreigner can only get in the US military as a green card holder. The only ways to get a green card are through family or work - and the latter takes years for all but the most sought-after people. Marry a Septic. Has to the opposite sex, though - they don't allow the other stuff for visa purposes.
