I just remembered something. I served with a guy who was not a citizen. He was from Mexico actually and he told me he would be able to become a citizen when his four years were up. I also knew a Filipino guy in the same situation. They were technically "illegals". Did you know, the military hires "illegals" to serve? I served beside illegals! To me they were more patriotic than most people on this board, but they would be looked at as simply "illegals" Thoughts?
