I'll be honest with you. Becoming a badass marine isn't my end goal. It's more a way to get to be a lone soldier or, as is more commonly known, a mercenary. My father was a merc. Did a lot of sh!t in nam, korea, falklands and some top secret sh!t in afica somewhere that apparently went hard core on him. My dad's told me stories of his merc days, I leanrt how he was cornered in a shack and attacked by 100s of infantry and a tank. He killed most of the infantry with his bayonet and destroyed the tank by charging it head on, jumping on top of it's main gun, reaching for his nades and throwing a nade down the barrel of the gun ... then leaping to cover before the nade exploded inside the barrel and obliterated everything inside. So how does one go from marine to merc? Who do you contact? Clearly you can't just knock on the RSM's door and say "listen up fool, i'm goin merc". So how do you get to be a lone soldier and wander the lands fighting for the highest bidder? It's my dream and I aim to make it happen.
