I'm new to this forum and have a pretty bazaar question I'm hoping to get some insight to:
I'm planning a trip to visit my grandparents in Russia whom I haven't seen in something like 14 years. I came across a warning that traveling to Russia is a red flag for anyone working for the government--which would include the military.
I'm super interested in submitting a packet for WOFT and I'm wondering if international travel would have any effect on getting into WOFT or acquiring proper security clearances or anything along those lines. Any info that could give me some insight on this would be super appreciated.
A little more background:
17 years old.
Never been to Russia before.
Both parents are U.S. citizens; one is an immigrant.
I'm not a spy.
