Thank you very much Mr. Ron for being so generous with your advice and support for military families! My husband is a US Citizen serving in the Marine Corps. We have been married for two years and I am applying now to remove conditions on my permanent residency. I want to apply for government jobs but was told that I need to be a US Citizen to apply, that even as a permanent resident I cannot be paid with "appropriated funds" Is there any way around that rule? Or is there any way to speed up my citizenship process given I am married to the military? Thanks!!
