Hi everyone!

There is a question on N-400 regarding affiliation with communist party. It reads like that: "Have you ever been a member of or in any way associated (either directly or indirectly) with the Communist party?" I was a member of "Oktyabryata" in elementary school and then became a "Pioner" in the end of the 3rd grade. Soviet Union collapsed when I was about to start 5th grade, so I obivously never been a member of "Komsomol" or the Communist Party (KPSS) itself. Should I just answer "no" or should I answer "yes" and provide the explanation?

Thanks!

I would answer it no. Almost everybody who grew up in the FSU was a member of Oktyabryata, and although Oktyabryata was a state sponsored organization, it was not the Communist party, nor was it political in nature other than to teach children how to be good Soviet citizens.

Remember, on all government forms - KISS.

If you weren't a member of a communist party then answer no. Don't get into a debate over if it's "technically the feeder organization for communist supporting groups" or "I would've been" or "It could be construed as a communist group." If it's a group for kids, it's a group for kids, plain and simple.

Ensure your beneficiary makes and brings with them to the States a copy of the DS-3025 (vaccination form)

If the government is going to force me to exercise my "right" to health care, then they better start requiring people to exercise their Right to Bear Arms. - "Where's my public option rifle?"

This is probably the most succinct answer to date. Don't over-think, don't over-analyze. Just answer the question. :)
