VJ people, i've been thinking this issue for how many times.. i'm a filipino citizen, if i will join the US navy and become a US citizen is it possible that i can acquire dual citizenship both for US and Philippines?

You can't join the Navy if you are not at least a US permanent resident.

He wasn't asking for the requirements. I'm sure he knows that. He was asking if he could keep dual citizenship.

I believe you can't, but I also only heard it from someone. Call your embassy and see what they say. Good luck!!!
