7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I am preparing my parent's N-400 application and I came across this question on Part 11 #15. Were you ever a member of, or did you ever serve in, help, or otherwise participate in, any of the following groups? A. Military Unit

My mom and dad both serve 30+years in the military (Philippine Air Force) to be specific. I want asking for everyone's thoughts on this. Is the military unit mentioned can be military ran by the government? Should I answer yes to this and attached an explanation sheet? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Kababayan,

No problem yan. My tito naturalized also after serving sa Marines for over 20 years. Answer "Yes", and specify that Philippine Air Force. Will not be an issue.

Salamat! Did he attach an extra sheet explaining the fact he answered yes?

This will not be an issue of any kind.......definately include this information.

The Philippine military is THE closest military ally to the US.......there is no security risk here.

Good luck to your parents
