Look up Ruediger Richter. He was born in Berlin, served in the German Merchant Marines, got imprisoned in France and fought with the Foreign Legion for 5 years before going to the U.S. and fighting in Vietnam before getting shot in the face. He's not famous by any stretch. He was merely in a famous picture, "The Agony of War." and he got tracked down and interviewed years later.

I new a guy who fought with the Italian black shirts against Ethiopia and was wounded. He told me they were more like Italians equivalent to boy scouts. years ago the Italian government sent letters to Italians from Italy to send there sons back to fight in the war, his dad did it my fathers father did not send my dad back, anyway, when he came back and WW2 started, he was drafted into the American Army and fought in Germany. probably a lot of people fought in more than one Army

You know you're elite when your job duties include hunter-killer against enemy special forces. Of course, "special forces" is a very broad term, so you could just as easily be gunning down helpless mooks whose only "special" trait is knowing how to scuba-dive and lay mines at the same time.
