Cobain Nearly Joined the Navy
At some point in Cobain’s eventful and eccentric life, he had actually considered joining the Navy. In fact, he had gone beyond the considering stage, as Cobain had gone so far as to meet with the military recruiter in order to discuss his signing up. This was in 1984 and it was Don Cobain who might have been behind it as he had requested the Navy recruitment officer to speak to his son. Kurt did listen at the time but he followed up a year afterward, after Trevor Briggs enlisted, who was a friend of Kurt’s. Kurt passed the aptitude test, but he pulled out right at the last moment.
