You know your stuff, I'll check my facts with my friends. The reason I use the term SSF is there is an individual who is personally known to many members of ASC who'd rather remain anonymous. Naming a regiment, name, or service record goes against his wishes. This man in particular was not a sniper, but an very long standing member if the CF. We've has many talks about training/maneuvers, etc; but he us reluctant to speak of other details (obviously). Anyways; I respect him and his privacy.
As for the USMC recruitment, apparently they recruit openly from a few countries. I'm sure there is a strict process involved including security checks, etc; they actively look for members from Canada, Britain, France, etc.
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
