First and foremost, I need to say that I passionately am against any war and the war in Iraq.
I have been in the US for 33 years documented and legal (I arrived when
I was 3 because of war). I would very much like to get my US Citizenship. I grew up enamored in the constitution and the spirit of this country, even so that I do not shut up about things, which I see violate the spirit of the constitution, sometimes to the dislike of our governments. However, unfortunately I have made minor mistakes in my life, which makes the process drawn out and difficult. A "possession of less than 30 grams marijuana for personal use", even though I was and am a Medical Marijuana Patient.
I feel that if I joined the military, I would earn my citizenship
automatically as Bush has set forth. My time is ticking because later
this year I will be too old to join. It would also give me a chance to
prove the love and passion I have for the US. I also have some Arabic
speaking skills, and am very in touch with the customs. This may be my
only way, I have two beautiful American boys and an outstanding American
wife who I have been with for 18 years. It really makes sense to me.
