In my 20 years' service, I've known German, Belize, Philippino, Thai, French Foreign Legion (he was not French, but spoke English with a French accent), a Brit or two, and Koreans who were in the US Army; though, the Koreans I knew were naturalized US citizens.Legal Permanent Residents make up 2.8% of the active duty military.
About 8,000 Legal Permanent Residents enlist in the US Military each year, 4.3% of enlistments.
Since 1997, Non-Citizens rate of enlistments have remained stable.
Navy: 1995 - 4.7% 2003 - 5.8%
Army: 1995 - 4.3% 2003 - 4.2%
