As active US military you do Not select Foreign Country for your state of residence.  You select your Home of Record, the state where you lived when you enlisted.  You also indicate that you did Not live in any other states and if your military pay is your only income, you indicate that you did Not earn money in any other states.

@DoninGA So when asked "where was I stationed?" should I still put my Home of Record or foreign?

I don't see that question being asked on my desktop edition where I indicate I am military.  You must be using the online edition.  What are the options give for this question?

Ok..then select foreign and answer the follow up question for how long you lived in the US.

 

This in no way should have any affect on what you enter in the My Info section of the program.  So after completing these questions click on My Info on the left side of the program screen and make sure that those questions are answered correctly as discussed in my first message to you.
