Americlap that got discharged from the marine corps looking to join a foriegn millitary preferably one that actually does shit. Ive been thinking about the royal marines but apparently you need to be a resident for 5 years before you can enlist, the FFL seemed perfect but ive heard thet are getting pretty picky about who they are taking.
the background check is a joke, it is just to ease off so diplomatic relationships and a paper tiger to say that France honors international treaties.
if you have dual citizenship then use your other citizenship
if you don't then be creative ;)
i am ranking countries/groups by (roughly) the number of people they have in the FFL
and i disagree with your two other points, having experienced that first hand. all the people who go through the training are very professional soldiers. and the french soldiers/officers i have served with were excellent
By corpsman you mean Navy hospital corpsmen? Medics? I don't know USMC lingo.
But I'm an Army medic and literally no one here gives a shit, hell, half my platoon was on something before they joined.
Not if that American has prior military service.
The FFL will take someone with prior service over someone who doesn't 9 times out of 10, regardless of nationality.
If we're talking no prior military service, than yeah, Americans aren't as desirable and 3rd world shitters because they know the poorfag is a lot less likely to desert and go back home when shit gets hard like someone from a developed country would. But prior militaryfags know what they're getting into so the chances of them doing that are extremely low
Especially if they have prior service, love. They want raw recruits they can beat into shape. Americans have a reputation for being deserters too which doesn't help.
And they'll look into why you were booted out and they'll find out.
