I am really interested in joining the Army. I have a F-1 visa and currently attending college. I meet all the requirements that is listed in the MAVNI program. But I am little confused about the "valid status" part. The MAVNI programs says that "The applicant must have been in valid status". Well, I technically meet that requirement. My visa in my passport is already expired but I am still staying here legally because my I-20 is still valid. But I talked to a recruiter on the Facebook page of the Army, and he said that I must have a valid visa, and his answer just made me confused. Maybe he thought that I am no longer staying here legally because my visa expired. I even talked to my recruiter and he said that I am fine with my valid I-20. Now I am not sure which one is correct, my recruiter or the recruiter on the Facebook page.
That's the Facebook page link.
