My parents say that I'm of draft age, so I'm sort of worried about returning this summer. I'm not a ROC citizen- my dad wants to get me an ID card when I return this summer (I do have a ROC passport). I'm a US citizen with a US passport. My dad says he will try to get me an overseas chinese stamp soon. If I return for 3 months or so, will I get drafted by the Taiwanese military? Please help me understand my situation; I have to attend college after high school so I cannot serve in the military for 2 years.
