Forgive me for doing this, but I couldn't think of another (better) place online to ask this question. So, I'm Portuguese and Angolan (hold both passports), and my dad introduced to me the idea of joining the Angolan army. I've been intrigued by the army since a kid, and in uni I was thinking of joining first the French Foreign Legion, then of ways to possibly join the Royal Marines and then (possibly) the SAS. I could easily change my passport since I have been here for ten years now. Anyway, that was just to show that joining the armed forces does interest me. But, a few things are giving me second thoughts. First, joining the Royal Marines would be better because the British armed forces are known for being quite possibly the very best trained in the World. I don't think us Angolans can boast anything like that (best in Africa? meh..) So once I left for the civilian life again, I would expect that such an accomplishment (plus a degree that I hold) would impress employers. Second, I love London and I want to stay here. Just recently, I've started to enjoy my life so much more, I think joining the army would take that away from me. I can't make up my mind if the tradeoff is worth it. So I would like to hear, from your perspective as military men, if you think I should join (the Angolan army). I don't know much about it, and there isn't much info online, so I'll never get unbiased information on it. Maybe some of you know bits about the Angolan armed forces as well... Thanks a lot.
