I am interested in becoming an officer. What are my options?
The unit structure of the 7th CSC after transformation contains many additional officer slots. To assist with filling this shortfall, the command is utilizing two programs: direct commission and officer candidate school. In order to be eligible for commission, an enlisted Soldier must meet a list of requirements to include: Education (60 Semester Hours + ACT (19) or SAT (850), or a Bachelors degree); Age (screen for 40 and below); Security clearance (Interim Secret); GT score (110+); Must be a U.S. Citizen (no dual citizenship).
I hold dual citizenship and am interested in becoming an officer. Where do I begin the process?
Becoming an officer in the U.S. military requires a security clearance. Individuals that maintain dual-citizenship are not allowed to obtain a security clearance and are therefore not eligible to become officers.

-Skeletor- said:IMO it would just make things simpler to just have a US citizenship if you want to join the US Military then get the Canadian one back when you are done. Being able to get a security clearance would open more doors in the Military.
In some situations, you might decide that you want to renounce (give up) your Canadian citizenship. For example, if you are or want to become a citizen of a country that does not allow dual citizenship, you may have to renounce your Canadian citizenship.
For a renunciation of Canadian citizenship to be recognized in Canada, you must make a formal application to renounce your citizenship.
If you renounce your Canadian citizenship, you will lose all the rights and privileges of Canadian citizenship. For example:
You will lose the right to travel under a Canadian passport.
You will lose the right to vote.
If you want to return to Canada as a permanent resident, you will have to go through the immigration process.
