As the program wraps up, Army recruiter Staff Sgt. Khori Grant discusses how the recruitment campaign has gone and introduces one of his new international recruits, Srinivasa Dandu.

It's a great opportunity offered by the US Army. This Bill will benifit both US and the Immigrant worker. Also, it will build trust amongts Foreign Immigrants towards USA, although offering backend job in US Army.
This bill will definately ensure that US Army have a better reach worldwide in foreign issues or realted military operation overseas, as they will have a global taskforce.
Goood strategy from US Army, should recruit more Foreign Immigrants fimalier with various Foreign territory, Language Skills & native culture.

This is a wonderful gesture by the US once again. Not just the private sector, even the army is ready to recruit a foreigner as long as he fits the bill. A country that is ready for globalisation in the truest sense which really is commendable.
