OK, I know I'm going to get a lot of ribbing by you guys, but I'm hoping, despite all the sh*te I'm going to receive, to get some serious answers / guidance as well. BLUF: Can a Yank Gunner officer join HM's Army? I've been in the US Army for over 5 years now. A significant amount of this time has been spent in the deserts of Afghanistan and Iraq, where I've had the opportunity to work quite extensively with British Forces. I love being in the Army, the problem I have is with the people ... my experience with many of my senior leaders is that theyâre right cnuts! And the command culture is out of control amongst our senior leadership. In my experiences with Brit forces, you seem to operate in a much more relaxed fashion, care and put emphasis on the issues that need it (not the ones that don't really mean anything), and basically just aren't so uptight like many of the US personnel with whom I grudgingly deal on a daily basis. I know Brit forces have personnel from other countries in her services, so I thought why not look into the possibility. I love the Army in general, and am not ready to give it up; that's why I'm considering giving it a try. I just don't know if I can take the people in the US Army for the remainder of a military career. There are 2 caveats to my question though: 1. Could I maintain my US citizenship? (Not sure that I want to give that up to join another nation's armed service.) 2. Could I still be an officer in HM's service? Thoughts? Ideas? Recommendations? Righteous poking fun of my crazy question?
