Thats all true mahon, You can have a duel citizenship with the brits. You dont have to give up your own Passport, Or you could live here for 3 years whichever you prefer. It's easy enough to apply as well, my mate is from dublin but his in the marines (Irish guards) and has been for 5 years. He still has his irish passport. Check out, or just ring up a recruiter and they will tell you all you need to know. Brit marines have come a long way and i personally think are just as good if not better than us. No offense to any us marines in here, ye still have the better navy air corp! :P So its something i'd look into, they can also send you to university if you wanted.

But I have heard of a few guys who do 5 years in the legion and they either love it or hate it, but you get to learn French.
Maybe some Yanks on here will know if you can apply for a green card on the basis you are enlisting. Only their Marines are reaching their recruiting targes at the moment.

So many drop out after their first 2 weeks out in the weeds on ration packs...
