Meno and the Military

1978-1982 and 1992-1993

I was drafted in 1978 and volunteered to serve with the Marine Regiment on the island of Bornholm. I was selected for squad leader very early. After my drafted term I joined the professional ranks in 1978 and went later on to Sergeant School in June – September 1979. I left the army to finish my engineering degree in 1985. I rejoined my old unit in 1992 to serve with them in the early parts on the UNPROFOR Mission. I transferred to work with the United Nations as a civilians Engineer in March 1993.
