Topic: You are not a Finnish Marine!

Sorry to break it to you son, but you are not part of Finnish Marines. You are a regular Army soldier who's stationed in Swedish speaking base at the coast. That's why you are called Rannikkojääkäri. You are serving only six months and that makes you a Rubberhead 'kumipää' in Finnish. You are a free loader, almost as bad as civil service hippies. You just happen to have a green beret, it's not a symbol of Special Forces in Finland, it's just a green hat! Wake the f k up!

Naval Infantry trains the Finnish Marines in Helsinki Naval Base in Upinniemi. Only 80 men/women(so far only men) make the cut on yearly basis. They are all specially trained for 12 months. The training contains mostly guerrilla activity in the Finnish archipelago and in normal forrests, rifle squad leading and explosive handling. All the training is done under a heavy mental pressure to increase mental strength. After the training they qualify as a squad leaders of a Naval Infantry rifle platoon. That's when their duty begins, they attend yearly military rehearsals and serve as active reserve's men/women until they hit 35. Not like you, Rubberhead, you dodge the real service for 6 short months, go home and forget about it!
