Default How to be a pmc

Though im only fifteen, im really interesred in becoming a PMC (Private Military Contractor). My brother (hes in the army reserves) says the best thing to do is finish school, join the army, and go from their. really what i want to know is, are there any other ways to get into the buissnes? I know that S.W.A.T. is a good start but ive heard thats the longer choice.

My advice: Your only fifteen, you have a lot of growing up to do, decide later.

You Are Now Breathing Manually...

My advice would be to play Metal Gear Solid 4.


All joking aside, I would agree, on my limited knowledge, that some form of armed service will probably be one of your best bets. Serve well, serve for some time, make it through with good marks and you can probably just walk in and ask about 'job openings'

Though, Im not exactly one to be in tune with PMC hiring methods.

My other advice would be to kill a man, then walk down dark alleys looking for men with pamphlets, but...

note, only the middle part of my post should be taken with seriousness. Finish school and join the armed services. Go from there is my advice.

why do the PMCs attract you more than conventional military service?

Very busy IRL at this time, do not be suprised if I don't reply to PMs for prolonged periods.

Possibly the pay/benefits? Equipment? More freedom[perhaps]? Less affiliated?

Honestly I could think of several reasons, and I've never even considered it. And thats not to bash the armed forces...

I don't think SWAT is the way to go because I think you have to be a cop for a few years before you can apply to SWAT and you have to be 21 to be a cop so .....
Join the Marines not the Army.
But first go down to the local VA hospital and volunteer so you get an idea of the other side of adventure.

Just a quick glance at the Blackwater site and you will see that military experience is a must, the more the better but police experience works too.

Don't do drugs, hang out with loose women or drive fast cars either.
