  • Permanent Resident with questions

    Greetings all!

    I am a newly minted Legal Permanent Resident since October 2012. My LPR card is the conditional card and valid for 2 years. I already have a bachelors degree, a job in the IT field as a Network Engineer. I am interested in signing up with the Army National Guard for a variety of reasons.

    I met with my local recruiter and discussed various options. I do have some questions, and any help would be appreciated.

    1. Am I eligible to sign up with a conditional or 2 year green card (less than 2 years remaining now)?
    2. Does enlisting in the Army National Guard expedite the citizenship process? I know the fees are waived, but the USCIS website is not quite clear on the expediting part.
    3. Getting citizenship is not a problem for me - I can wait till 2015 - but, can I sign up for Officer Training with my Permanent Resident status and bachelors degree? Or is that off limits?

    Any help would be appreciated.
