What are the restrictions on legal aliens serving in the US Military? Can they become officers and if so how high up? Do they have to be in the process of acquiring US citizenship?

No green card, no enlist. Even legal aliens.

Technially, all green card holders can also be drafted - and you have to register for Selective Service when you get your green card.

Additionally, if you aren't a citizen, you will be limited from certain job specialties in which a security clearance is required.
