My name is Dean O'Neill and, I was born in Ireland where I have spent my whole life. Ever since I was 8 years old, it has been my dream to enlist in the United States Army and serve the United States of America. Since then I have been doing everything to help me enlist and follow my dream. I have study and trained I have even attended the US Army Cadet Corps Basic Training and Ranger Course in Millersburg Kentucky this year. The year before that I signed up to Cedar Bridge Military Academy in New Jersey and was defrauded out of over $8000 USD (the news story can be found online). I have also tried to register in military colleges such as VMI and NMMI, but due to high cost and being from a single parent family I could not acquire the funds. Well basically I’m now 18 and I have tried to enlist and not being a US resident/citizen I can not.
So this petition is to show the US Embassy in Dublin Ireland that other people support me which will hopefully get me closer to getting a green card and enlisting. Before you judge me, this is not a citizenship thing, I am most probably more of a patriot that most Americans, so believe me when I say, I just want to enlist and help make a difference in the world. So I am asking everyone to please sign this petition' to help me follow my Dream.
