As many fans of Dillon Francis and the Electronic Dance Music industry know Dillon is the prankster of the bunch. His online store includes real merchandise as well as acts. Acts that include Dillon painting a picture of your family, remixing a blink 182 song, shaving his head. All of these acts can be added to your shopping cart and bought with real money and Dillon Francis will do what is bought. Joining the army cost a fan $1,000,000.00, which is the most expensive act of the entire store. One fan named L’ort Ouy Ming from China purchased the product yesturday . He spoke through his translator: “I wanted to see if he actually would do it, and I thought this would be amazing”.
Dillon tweeted that he was at the Army Recruiting station in Missouri before he plays tonight at Elektricity Festival with Major Lazer, Dillon Francis, Baauer, and Samo Sound Boy. Dillon tweeted that the recruiter had some good career options for him tweeting that a position as a 29E Electronic Warfare Specialist was available.
Dillon Francis seemed very eager to join as he always wanted to serve his country. The responsibilities of the Electronic Warfare NCO may include “Planning along the lines of an Electronic Attack (using EW to disrupt enemy communications systems and such) Electronic Support (which is helping friendly forces by using EW detection assets to locate enemy units) and Electronic Protection (which is using equipment to protect our communication systems and other electronic type of equipment)”.
Dillon is set to go to boot camp February 8th 2014, his manager said. Following bootcamp is 29E training. According to the Army.com website: “The Electronic Warfare (EW) Specialist Course is a nine-week MOS producing course delivered at the FCOE (Fort Sill, OK). Graduates are awarded MOS 29E. These EW NCO’s are provided the education and training in the essential core skills necessary to successfully perform EW functions in support of the commander’s concept of operations. Emphasis is on Army and Joint doctrine, tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP) to prepare NCO’s to participate in integrating EW into Full Spectrum Operations (FSO) in a variety of Army and Joint organizations. Focus is on the Battalion level.”
It is a great thing for Dillon to be serving his country and sets a good example for many people across the world in the electronic dance music community that you can still believe in Peace, Love, Unity and Respect and still serve in the Armed Forces. After Dillon serves his three year enlistment he will go back to college to use the GI Bill. “The Army has some great benefits that I am going to take advantage of, I am very excited” Dillon exclaimed.
