We have at least one Swede here who might give you direction, however you probably need to post in a more articulate manner for him to bother.

PMC:No Military training no chance. If you you want to be connected to a halfway up and up company.

Just dropping ideas here. What about the french foreign legion?

They accept foreigners. The pay isnt much, but they will give a first rate training. And you will learn french, an interesting language. And you will meet people from all over the world in an unique environment.

Lot of training, a high level of combat readyness... And I think they didnt see much action these last years, as France is very cautious with the military.

And by the way, the PMC have a pretty bad reputation. They are seen as gunmen for hire... mercenaries, even as criminals in some places... You have to think these kind of things through...

You want some advice on your military career?
It is not hard to get into the Army, you just need to study some.
The army are going to start hiering soldiers on contracts.
If you go that route you will get your wish of becoming pooorly paid.

A word of caution to you my young friend.
Do not even concider the FFL option.
If you haven´t bothered to learn better english in a minimum of 5 years of school you wouldn´t stand a chance learning French in the time alotted to you.

Have a very good day.

Just to reinforce this, as KJ mentioned, unless you have prior service or experience with the topic in question, do NOT post advice.

This is clearly stated here: Facts Only, NOT Fiction! - EVERYONE READ HERE BEFORE POSTING

Sorry admin, my bad.
But I said nothing false. It's common knowledge around here. And I know some guys who went through the foreign legion.
Anyway, I'm not a recruiter or anything... Just dropping ideas.

There have been non-prior service people getting into PMCs.
I can't recall the name of the fellow but a such individual was pointed out in "Licensed to Kill" by Robert Young Pelton.
The first name of the guy was a either "Lindsey" or "Leslie." Memory kinda eludes me...
Been trying to find some internet article or something that mentions this guy but I can't find any.

LeMask, you can't drop ideas about stuff you have no idea about.
