Has anyone here have or know of someone that has had any experience in the military?
particular they were an artist, working or aspiring. please pass on any details.
wont go into too much details but I've been contemplating it. things have happened in my life recently and the brief and even humouring idea from many many years ago has resurfed with a serious turn.
I'll never give up drawing and painting, but as a career, I am not ready for it, but feel no longer have the opportunity to strive hard towards it like I used to.
I can't drone in retail full time. destroys me inside.
I have been hesitant on joining the royal marines, particular because of the cause of whatever they would send me off to fight for but the training, the mental state, and comradery would fit me like a glove. I've lived an active/fit/train hard lifestyle my whole life thus far.
Recently came to my attention the united nations peace soldiers. They only hire already active soldiers of member states which is a shame as I would jump at that instantly, but it has added positivity to me wanting to join to then get into that.
what are your experiences? why did you join? what happened to your art practice/ strive?
