So, I'm not from the US, I'm actually from Georgia and have been living here for 17 years. I've wanted to join which i probably will for years know but specifically BUD/S. So people in NSW, if you ever saw actual foreigners that made it through the pipeline and earned the trident, could you tell me anything about the process based on what you know? Cheers

Are you a US citizen?
No. I've heard with a green card you can enlist and after four years you will become a US citizen. Therefore you try and land a contract for various jobs that require a eligibility for secret clearance. That's the extent of all i know on the matter.

I only looked at the requirements for SEAL and Army SF, but both say you have to be a US citizen. I know the Army runs a chat server/ forum for recruiting questions, goarmy.com maybe so I'd start there for Army stuff. Also google for SEAL recruiting and you should find an official site where you can ask about the green card route.

Good luck.
