He’s about 24 and a dude, so I can’t marry him. He’s in the Belarusian army right now, but wants to join the American army. Does the U.S. army take foreigners?
I think America has restricted immigration from Belarus, so the only way I know he can get a green card is through a lottery. Is there any other option available for him or is his only shot to win the lottery?
In case you don’t know anything about living conditions in Belarus, I’ll give you a brief rundown. The average income per person is about $300 a month. Furniture, clothes and electronics cost about twice as much as they do in America and they don’t even have the latest brands. Plus, unless you live in Minsk (their capitol), there is nothing for you to do. You also have no money for the few clubs and restaurants available to you. Most kids spend there time online, using a 56k modem, the fasted speed available to them.
I hope you can see why the kid wants to leave.
