    Default Form I-485 and Mandatory Foreign Military Service

    In my country of birth we have 2 years of mandatory military service. I am wondering if I should say yes to question 15a and 18 in part 3 of form I-485. It is scary saying yes to anything on that even though its just military service. Any advice?anyone done military service before and filled up this form? Thanks. Also as my job was non combat, should I only say yes to question 18 and not 15a? Thank you.

    Question 15(a) is "Have you EVER: a. Served in, been a member of, assisted in, or participated in any military unit, paramilitary unit, police unit, Yes No
    self-defense unit, vigilante unit, rebel group, guerrilla group, militia, or insurgent organization?"

    If you have in fact served in a military unit then the answer is "yes".

    Question 18 is "18. Have you EVER received any type of military, paramilitary, or weapons training?"

    If you have received any type of military, paramilitary, or weapons training, the answer is "yes".

    thanks. Does anyone have a sample continuation page as I need to explain in a continuation page when I answer yes. I am very worried my continuation page is not good. Also are there any font requirements by USCIS?
