Thanks everyone for your support.
I’m invited to complete the SF86 for an OCONUS linguist job. Being someone who lived abroad for 13 years before moving to the US in 2014 and becoming a US citizen early 2019, it was natural that i had many (hundreds) of contacts with foreign nationals. All was smooth until i reached #19 Foreign Contacts.
The form says “Do you have or have you had close and/or continuing contact with foreign nationals within the last 7 years with whom you, your spouse, or your cohabitant are bound by affection, influence, and/or obligation? Include associates, as well as relatives…”
This was confusing to me because anyone who i knew (by affection or associates, work) say between 2012 and 2019, whether or not i have current contact with, still need to be listed as per the instructions.
My company however says don’t worry about the old contacts just list the ones you have current contact with, and purge your facebook friends, which shrinks the list considerably.
What should i do? As someone who lived abroad i’m bound to have a LOT of people i had close or continuing contact with. But as per company advice i was explained to only focus on the ones i currently have.
Please help me out with this as it can have a great impact on the amount of people to report.
