 question #54 in Part 8 of the I-485 asks "Have you EVER been a member of, assisted, or participated in any group, unit, or organization of any kind in which you or other persons used any type of weapon against any person or threatened to do so?" 

 

I want to mark "No" because well geez it just sounds so bad but my husband was in the military in Colombia and well.. I mean... they do that kind of stuff in the military so I'm thinking I should mark "Yes"? Wondering what to mark so as to avoid causing problems...

You have to mark yes and then elaborate in the Additional info section....even if it sounds bad.

Ok... when elaborating... do you think it would be sufficient to say something like "soldier in Colombian national military" or do I need to be more specific?

I'd be more specific in stating what training he had and what role he played. Keep in mind that soldiers are not looked upon in a bad light if presented well.
