"And not every soldier has what it takes to earn the maroon beret. "There aren't any weir d Harolds or tat Alberts in this oulfit. The men are all physi- cally fit, clean-cut, profes- sional soldiers." WO Marr has been a soldier for 13 years and has never been shot at, although he has been peace-keeping forces in Germany and Cy- prus. Yet his superior officers consider him and his fellows in the regiment the finest fighting men in the world. Last summer he was sent to the U.S. Army Ranger school for 58 days. There he received the highest mark ever given any soldier. His life is a series of train- ing exercises to prepare him to fight, whether it be in a general war, a peace-restor- ing operation or a civil upris- ing. He couid be parachuting into the Arctic on a survival course, sealing peaks in the Reeky Mountains to bone up on mountain warfare, working at bayond drill or practising unarmed combat. ALL TIIKATEI) AUKE "The stress and strain of training is very demanding. You learn a lot about your- self. No one is exempted. Everyone endures the same hardships, even the officers." WO Man- has a wife and two children and doesn't view fighting as "the ultimate aim in life." "But our country has to have a defence and I think this is the best way I could be employed." The armed forces, he feels, have been good to him. lie lives in an army house for which he pays a month rent. About a month is deducted from his pay for a pension which will give him half salary after 25 years of service. The Marr children go to school on base and fake ad- vantage of base recreation programs. His own education has been improved since he left high school at the age of 17. Through the army he has taken courses and will have the equivalent of a high school diploma before he retires. MUST OVERCOME FEAR He also considers his train- ing a valuable education, a process by which he has learned self-discipline and his capabilities. "Eveiyone has a fear of height, water and getting hurl. This is something you musl overcome. You must have faith in your training and ability." His ambition is to serve in the airborne for the rest of his military career, though he re- alizes he may be posted back to his old regimeni to make room for volunteers. "I would be disappointed if I had to leave the airborne, but this would not hinder my ability to soldier. I would be able to pass on what I learned to men in other units."
