Comment: Immigrant Soldiers - The Strategy Page notes "In the last decade, the U.S. military has enlisted some 70,000 non-citizens, about five percent of all recruits. These foreigners made better soldiers than American citizens. The foreigners are tossed out during their first three months of service at half the rate of their citizen counterparts. After three years of service, 72 percent of citizens were still in uniform, compared to 84 percent of non-citizen troops. The foreign troops are more patriotic and work harder than their citizen counterparts... In the last decade, some senior American officers suggested recruiting more foreigners. Not just non-citizens with green cards but foreigners who are not residents of the United States." The illustrious history of foreigners serving in US military goes back to Marie Joseph Paul Yves Roch Gilbert du Motier, Marquis de La Fayette, and continues through the civil war to present day. Offering US citizenship in return for military service to those who are de facto Americans, though not de jure Americans, due to the accident of being brought into this country as children by their parents, is consistent with this great tradition. You can see the list of immigrants who received the Medal of Honor, the highest military award given by the United States government here. Please let us know your thoughts on immigrants in the military by writing to us at editor@ilw.com.
