Military to Enlist Legal Aliens who Hold Critical Skills

The Defense Department announced on December 5, 2008 that it has authorized the military services to implement a pilot program that will temporarily permit enlistment into military service certain legal aliens (who have lived in the United States for at least two years) who hold skills that are critically needed in the military. The pilot will address health care professionals holding needed medical specialties (physicians and nurses) and people with skills in certain strategic foreign languages and cultures, qualifications important to present and future military operations. A fact sheet detailing the languages and basic requirements is available. Click the link below for further details.
