Christian Kruse, Journalist

Topic: “Life is war. One minute at a time. 12 years in the making.

Christian Kruse, born in 1985 in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany, joined the German Army in 2005 for a 12-year career as an officer. Coming from humble roots in rural Germany, he quickly realized that becoming a soldier was about a lot more than picking up a gun, wearing a uniform and following commands. Life is tough and so is the military. The questions is: Are you committed to serve the values, the people and your future self?
Today Christian serves his customers with his inspiration, integrity and commitment to doing the best work he possibly can.
