Howdy Margaret;

In addition to John Dennison's reply above, please note the following: 1) Malayan is a race not a nationality, 2) an inductee's race is specified by the inductee him or herself and by no one else on the very first form to be filled out when first arriving at boot camp (along with religious preference, hometown, etc.), 3) if the inductee is a U.S. citizen, no information is asked about national origin, and 4) nationality is only asked of persons who are not U.S. citizens.

In other words, if I happened to be a full-blooded Mescalero Apache and instead of checking the box that said "Native American" and checked the box that said "Polynesian", then as far as the military is concerned, my race would be Polynesian and it would take an act of Congress to change it. I'm not sure why the military even bothers to ask about race anymore; it really has no bearing on whether or not someone turns out to be good soldier, sailor, airman, or marine.
