Any help would be appreciated.
I am a born Canadian. I have talked with recruiters and people at the local consulate several times about enlisting in the US armed forces. The only answer I am given is I must get a H1-B visa before I get in. After having researched an H1-B, it is unlikely I will qualify for one (I am currently attempting to get a TN visa). Further, I find it hard to believe an employer is ok (and given no legal recourse) with going through a lawyer to get the government to permit me residency status and I then turn around and join a division of the armed forces and not fulfil the job I was hired to do.
I am 25, speak English and French fluently, have a Bachelor of Kinesiology (Exercise Science) and unlike many immigrants, I have a decent level of understanding of western civilization, democracy and capitalism (I've been told more H1-B's are given to guys from Mozambique than Canada, yet Canadians share much more with the US than Mozambique ever will).
Anyways, since 9/11 I've attempted a few times to get info on a way of getting in and was always told about this magical H1-B. If you guys know a realistic way of getting one or any other way of joining up for a term, let me know.
MS, might just end up in the crappy Canadian army.
