That was a joke about how those who tend not to have to sacrifice for others, often don't; and forget the meaning of respect and responsibility.
My friend who was US Marine got in through starting with the CF. He was not a US citizen, nor held and address there. I'm sure there was a lot of documentation involved. But I can't speculate on that.
There are different levels of sharp shooters from support to target elimination. My friends who spent years with the SSF explained that mathematics and applied physics were an asset often endorsed through their training programs when studying trajectory, and the affects of weather conditions, humidity, etc. Maybe it isn't a requirement. Obviously they'd consider anyone with the nack. But from what I understood they looked for exceptional individuals within the forces for consideration.
ďREALITY IS LIKE A STONE. TO MANY ITíS HARD AND COLD, THEY CANíT HUG IT OR EAT IT, IT ONLY FRUSTERATES THEM AND DOESNíT DO THEM MUCH GOOD. TO OTHERS ITíS STRONG AND DEPENDABLE, YOU CAN BUILD WITH IT, BUILD UPON IT, OR WORK WITH IT, ALSO USE IT TO SMASH PEOPLE IN THE FACE.Ē
