  1. I personally know of one person who started off in the RAF. In a competition he was found to be a good shot, and transferred to the army and trained as a sniper. At a later date he was sent to Vietnam to serve alongside a US unit. He won't talk about it now, as many of those he served along side of, were killed in action.

  2. Then you have Navy SEALS, the new vegan crossfitters of the military. Hey look at me Im a SEAL, buy my shit and buy my book its the best book ever cuz its about me!!!!
