Hello /int/
I am thinking about joining the legion
Why should/shouldn't I make an attempt?
>>
>>53147324
It's full of arabs
>>
>>53147324
thats pretty antipatriotic, congratz
>>
>>53147324
60% of the legion's personnel is actually French...
>>
>>53147377
>>53147449
>>53147603
I see no problems so far
I am also wondering which recruitment center I should go to, as I'm likely not to get in, and I have a few months to spend traveling.
I like a warm climate.
>>
>>53147674
I guess you have watched documentaries about the FFL
Is your cardio good enough?
Can you work hard on an insufficient diet?
Have you no family to miss?
Can you handle the bantz?
>>
>Go to their website
>Send them your Data
>Get invited to Training in France (They even pay you the travel and the stay)
>Be one of the best in Training
>Get send to Guyana
>Persevere
>You are now a Legionary
>>
>>53147324
I tried joining earlier this year
AMA
>>
>>53147879
Good physical shape
Honestly think I can't be broken mentally(probably wrong, can't change that perception until it's proven decisively)
Nobody to miss enough to make me want to stay
I have a mild form of bleeder's disease which will make me unfit for service if they find out
I presume the only way to find out that I have it, is to test for it specifically, and I am counting on that not being done.
>>
>>53148141
Do they test your blood?
Why didn't you get in?
Anything I should know?
>>
>>53148312
I dont think so
I failed a hearth exam second day but maybe they test your blood third day i dont know
Go to cervanes forum and ask
Forget the elite fighting squad bullshit
You will be canno meat
Thrown on whatever happens and if you die there wont be a public outcry because youre a legionare so nobody cares about you
They dont like guys from first world countries and very rarely they apply
And bring enough money if you go
I didnt and got stranded there for a week
>>
>>53148604
I suppose I am stupid if I join, as a first-worlder.
The pay is negligible, there are no career prospects, and I'll probably get killed, what with the bleeder's disease and everything.
Oh, well, I'll still be young in 5 years, and I'll be able to speak french and kill people efficiently.
wish me luck
>>
>>53149356
All true except for the carrer options
If you get accepted you can do more than 5 years
After 17(i think) you get a nice pension
If you have money to spend on the trip go for it
You can always desert if you dont like it
>>
>>53147324
Invest some money in training centers,and i don't mean academia(former blackwater)e.t.c usa centers which require us citizenship,rather search in europe.They exist.After that,you could search for a job in pmc.
>>
Ha ! Are you a criminal, or...?
god bless you, btw, you're a big guy
>>
>>53149630
Thanks for the info, I have money and free time, so I'll probably give it a shot

>>53149705
It's hard to make out anything from this desu
Are you urging me to get military training elsewhere, and then become a mercenary?

No its not. Dont lie. Sometimes when some caporal chef is drunk in Fort du Nogent they serve pork meat to arab candidates, kek.
Ferme ta golle, putain de merde.
>>
>>53149939
Why dont you serve your army first?
>>
>>53147324
I dont understand why you wouldn't join your own country's military instead when you are NATO?

The FFL is meant for dirt poor Africans that have no other choice than to fight for France with the shittiest equipment they can find.

I sure hope you at least have some military experience before you go to France
>>
>>53150327
I had no ambition to join when I was 18, and now that I'd like to join I can't, because I told them about my bleeder's disease, like a silly boy.
Anyway, the legion is sure to be more of an adventure, right?
>>
>>53150371
Wrong. Half of manpower is from France.
>>
>>53150534
Source? Only the officers are French according to my info
>>
>>53150453
Cant be sure on that, it depends on the regiment.
1 Rec sees a lot of action, and sometimes you will never see action in the 2 REP.
>>
I'd strongly advise against going unless you have prior (preferably infantry) experience in your country's military.
>>
>>53150453
>the legion is sure to be more of an adventure
Nope, go a head and join, you will be surprised when you realize how fucking boring the military is even on real missions.
>>
>>53150568
>>53150568
I still have friends in there.
>>
>>53150453
And if you are sick they can kick you out in the first 18 months, probatory period.
>>
Why are people so dumb?
>>
>>53150671
Why would I need military experience before joining? Isn't that the one thing they can teach me?
>>53150675
Can't be more boring than civilian life
>>53150806
I'm not sick
>>
>>53150897
Because they are young, have no real world experience and never leave their computers.


>>53150929
>Can't be more boring than civilian life
It's way more boring, trust me. I did a tour to Lebanon as well as 1 years conscription.
>>
>>53150929
Its boring as fuck. You are going to clean the same toilets seats three times a day, and after 2,5 when you become Caporal, you are going watch a Legionnaire clean the same toilets 3 times a day.

Civilian life:
>Real life

>cars
>food
>alcohol
>entertainment
>women
>autonomy
I don't understand how that is boring.
>>
>>53150929
I think you should start with living a week in your LOCAL forest to see if you are even serious with your plans.

That's how the military is, you won't see new places all the time. You are stuck in your shitty area doing the same things all the time.

Stop giving me good advice and let me waste my youth, please.

why dont you join the norwegian police man?
police>military

i heard on /k/ that they actually rape there
ou want to get raped by russians and africans?

They said that some russians were raping a chinese guy
>>
>>53151536
There are so much more interesting things you could do than waste your life in the military :)


>>53151615
Because he's bleeding from his ass and thinks the legion wont notice it.
>>
>>53151141
You can buy beer at the Foyer.

>>53151536
Only five years, unless you desert.
>>
>>53147324
Depend on what you seek.

Be aware you will be throw on the first line of every conflict of France will decide.

>>53151838
dude it was an old thread it probably got deleted already.
I think read it like 8 months ago.

But i do remember that the guy was actually Canadian.
And he saw Russian volunteers raping some Chinese.
>>
>>53147324
>wanting to be cannon fodder for france?
why?
the legion isn't an elite fighting squad like they try to advertise it's a suicide squad so the real french army doesn't suffer casualties.
if you want french citizenship just hop over the border and say your a syrian refugee that's really pale.
>>
>>53151615
I have to have perfect vision in order to join the police(don't ask why), and I think the police might have access to the military's records on me.
Not that interested in police work anyway.
>>53151655
I just read a little about it, and it has to be specifically tested for(even then it's difficult to detect, apparently)
I'm asymptomatic in daily life(getting shot might be a different story though).
The only reason it was discovered is because my sister also has it, and it's hereditary.
>>
>>53152056
no it's not come work here it's good i swear no suicide squad 100% guarantee become legion now
>>
>>53150929
You don't need any military experience. You need real life experience, you need to be a tough man with nothing to lose, willing to bury your previous life and in exceptionally good physical shape
>>
>>53151813
>>53152056
Obviously I am in a dire state, and can't see further than a year or even a month.
I don't mind being used by France, or anybody else for that matter.

they forgot feed them so the recruits had to steal food from the barracks
>>
>>53152335
you could join the US military depending on your circumstances
there's a shit ton of mexicans in the marines
I forget if you need a green card or not, there's a process.

if your looking for adventure military life might disappoint you. only the special forces really see action.

Officers are french indeed. Regarding the canon fodder, here is the 2007 composition:
France, 24%, Central Europe and Balkans 18%, Western world 15%, Slavic world 14%, Latin America 9%, Asia 9%, Black Africa 7%, Arabic world 4%.

You do need a green card in order to join the US military.

You need to be an citizen of the US to join the armed forces of the US. However, if you live in the states and have been for quite some time and are in the process of becoming a citizen you might be accepted because they know that you are "serious" in your plans.

>>53147324
I tried the legion and I failed, not to discourage you but if you want to be part of the special forces you should know that it is going to be extremely hard - they aren't kidding.

I have joined the Canadian military and life is pretty sweet, it's not as prestigious but the pay isn't horrible and I have a shot at integrating the special forces here.
>>
>>53147603
This is true, lots of eastern europeans as well and some arabs but it is mostly frenchmen that fills the ranks. I even met some brits
>>
If you say to a french girl that you were in the legion, you've got 80% chance to fuck her.
You learn cool song also
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yfhao6sEEMc
>>
>>53147924
They could be sent to Djibouti as well

You forgot some steps:

> Wish you were dead
> Learn the Marseillaise
> Handle the bantz
> Learn to love France
>>
>>53152754

>Central Europe and Balkans 18%

That's quite a few.

Then again we have a mercenary tradition.
>>
There is a lot of ex yugoslavs in the legion
>>
>>53150568
>Source? Only the officers are French according to my info
From what I've heard, a lot of Frenchmen sign up and write down that they're Belgian, Swiss or Canadian. Nobody bothers to doublecheck.
>>
>>53151813
So I am not a legionnaire but tried a couple years ago. From multiple discussions I had this reputation has been earned because when the Legion was created this was its purpose but the officer told me that if you look at recent conflicts (thirty years) the Legion is used much more strategically
>>
>>53153130
And songs from Nazi Germany as most L├ęgionnaires were German after WWII, compare:

>>
>>53153278
You can even sign up as a frenchman

Also lots of legionnaires have obtained French citizenship and continue to serve for years (sometime decades). They can become officers once they are french and if they are v good
>>
>>53153301
Well of course, it's not really "cannon fodder" (in the last 10 years, i think more american soldiers died than legionnaire)

But clearly, the legion is used as much as possible on the conflicts.
>>
>>53153278
If you apply with the French citizenship, they take your passport and/or ID card from you and you are registered as a foreign military under a pseudonym. If you desert you become stateless
>>
>>53153368
Well there was 210 000 germans on the legion in 1963, and probably more just after the war. So it's not surprising
>>
>>53153577
Yes, respect to them
>>
>>53153301
>but tried a couple years ago.
how'd you fail?
they just send you home because of no prior military experience or did you not meet the physical requirements?
