Default Green Card for military enlistment

I am anxious to join the military service in the U.S., my problem is that I don't have a Green Card. I have uncles and cousins that are citizens and my grandmother is a permanent resident, could they sponsor me? or would that be of any help? I don't care about any other jobs, I'm only interested in joining the military. I hope someone can help me or give me any advice because I'm eager to join as soon as possible. Thanks.

None of the relatives you have listed would be able to sponsor you. Only US citizen
parents, US citizen siblings, a USC child, or a US citizen or Permanent Resident
spouse can be a sponsor of a family member. Take Care. Shelley

Shelley thanks for your reply. One more question, could my aunt, who is a citizen, apply for my mother (her sister) and then for me?

That is going to be a long shot. Yes, your aunt can apply for your mother, but it may
take 10 - 20 years before your mother gets her green card (as US citizen's sibling),
then another 5 ot 10 years before you can get yours (either as green card holder's
unmarried son, assuming you are still not married by the time, or US citizen's son,
assuming you mother will get her citizenship 5 years after she gets her green card.)

Shelley answered this question already, but let me add that some people in the past
have been able to join the military without a Green Card by lying about their status.
Eventually, after they were honorably discharged, they often got Green Cards of even
citizenship despite the blemish on their record.

That is not to say I recommend this, quite in the contrary - it is a very dangerous
path to take. Especially if you have an unusual name or accent, there is a very high
probability that this will not succeed and get you into trouble.

Ingo,

Do you know if they check with immigration to validate your status? Or do they only need to see physically you have the card?

The military is just another employer in this respect. They will check if you have
any of the documents listed on the I-9.
