I have searched the ROTC forum and not found anything on this that is recent. My DS was offered and accepted a 4year Army ROTC and has just started college this fall. He is a US citizen by birth and a dual status citizen of a US allied country that was his fathers country of birth. He has both passports currently, and we lived abroad for one year when he was 11. When he applied for the ROTC scholarship he was told that he would have to renounce the other non US citizenship at commissioning, which he understood and agrees to do. Now he is being told he has to do it before contracting....which he is also willing to do...but I don't see anywhere how exactly that is to be done? Or if that is actually correct? I did read the Army regulation 145-1...and it seems to me that the only requirement is that he be a US citizen by birth. He is. Is the problem that that requirement only extends to participation in ROTC but to contract he must renounce? Help! Obviously the contracting part plays big in the finances in the coming months!!! It cant be that each Battalion or Company handles this as they see fit....so there must be more specific information somewhere? Thanks in advance for any direction or suggestions on where we/DS go for definitive information on how to move forward.
