In another post that I can't find now some one asked me if I minded talking about the Legion. As stupid as this may sound, I was born for that kind of life! I don't have nitemares about stuff I've done and seen, and have no problem talking about it!!! I don't like just rambling on about myself so if you have a question just ask!!! BUT understand the mentality is different and it was not the US military we did lots of things, I did things you may not like or approve of!

When I got out you had the choice to become a citizen or not (They didn't offer it to everyone just the guys that served honorably and were recommended by their CO. CMDRS. I was.) I chose to refuse it as the States didn't recognize dual citizenship at the time. They did give me a sort of French green card that gave me the right to stay and work in France if I chose to for 10 yrs.if I chose to.
When I joined they were accepting 1 out of about every 93 that showed up to join. The dregs of Europe try to join and a few get in (we called them engage gamelle, "Volunteered for dinner") however I did see former spetsnaz and other eastern SF guys get turned away! Needless to say I pounded my chest when I got chosen over those guys!!!
Keep em coming! Ask away!
By the way there is a Foreign Legion question and answer forum called cervens forum, It can be as bad as barf15.com so I rarely go there anymore and I personally know at least half the guys posting!

They are not different from other legionnaires, they are legionnaires but all they do is parades and things like that and they get to have beards the bigger the better. The uniform is just a traditional uniform from way back. I am not really sure how they became so special. Boot camp was 4 months and is pretty tough! all problems were solved "out back" The kepi blanc is earned by doing a 90 mile forced march in 5 days. almost every Sat. for 10 yrs we ran a 5 mile run with full gear before our weekend started at noon.
When I said people might not like what they read I was thinking about stuff like having a 10 girl lesbian show on the floor of a bar in Africa and enticing them and paying them with ration crackers.or the time I had a bet that if we hit a car with 2 rebels in it whether or not the anti tank missile would blow up in the car or pass through it, I lost the bet.... This WAS NOT the US military we were not humanitarians!
