I believe there's a special case for Filipinos joining the US Navy. Dunno if that's just an old law though.. it used to be there I'm sure.

That came about back in the 40s from the Military Bases Agreement, but in '92 they closed the recruiting stations and stopped taking them (they were only allowing about 400 a year in since the 70s anyway).

Title 10 makes it a requirement for immigrants to hold a green card to enlist in the US military.
