A Nigerian Man Who Signed up for US Marine Fled After Seeing Their Training Session
A Nigerian man, Akwari Charles has narrated how he nearly became a US Marine but fled after he saw the training involved.
Charles, who resides in USA, said he visited the recruiters office and declared his interest to join the marines.
After a series of question and answers, Charles was then given a form and told to send it through mail after accessing necessary information online.
All seemed well and done for him to join, until he reached home and watched a video of the training on YouTube, it was at that moment he had a change of mind.
In his words; ”I remember when I wanted to join the US marines.
I entered the recruiters office and told him of my interest.
He asked why?
I told him, I love the tactical nature of the force and also the leadership experience it presents.
He asked again, can you swim?
In my head, I’m like, “so person gats know how to swim”
I told him no and asked, would there be an opportunity for training?
He replied yea of course.
“Okwu a gwula”
Gave me the forms and asked that I access it online and send in my documents.
I got home and out of curiosity I went on YouTube to watch a video of the training.
Then I saw I would have to jump down from a Helicopter in full gear and weapon inside an ocean.
I changed my mind.
Anytime the recruiter calls me back, my heart skips.
I didn’t come to America to drown.”
