What does /r9k/ think of the French Foreign Legion? Is it worth joining?

I wouldn't mind killing terrorists and then settle down somewhere nice in France. Paris or whatever.
>>
lol you have no idea what you'd be getting into.

do it, faggot

Good luck getting in or surviving the brutal training

I'm physically fit and already have been in basic training in the army of my country. That was a few years ago.

Paris isn't actually that nice.

The recruitment test honestly looks like a joke.
4 pull-ups and that beep test thing is not 'brutal'.

>>26152624
there was some anon on /k/ who was in FFL.
He said that you have to know French and follow orders without question.
Also DI are fucking brutal and love humiliating fags like you.

nigger are you serious? you wouldn't last a minute, none of us would. and why would you want to go live in europe? so you can get your head chopped off by isis? retard
>>
>>26152511
it's 5 year minimum and you can't bring any shit with you like pictures tokens or mementos. they give you a new name too, which might be awesome like Jacques or it might be ASS like Guy
>>
>>26152682
Then he's obviously bullshitting because you don't have to know French.
And who cares about following orders. Why would I have a problem with that.
>>
>>26152704
Don't think that I'm a weak manlet just because you are. I'm fit and already have been in the army.
I also already live in Europe.

You will be sent to the worst possible warzones possible. You will be the first one in battle and the last one out. The Foreign Legion is a last chance to excel in life, everyone who joins is in someway human garbage and anyone who survives comes out as a new and honorable man. As a former foreign legion and robot, I have seen action in North Africa, South America, and in Afghanistan. The best way I can describe it to you is that the FL is sort of like a special forces except your superiors regard towards your own safety is not considered. Training isn't that tough if you are fit and you are required to take some french lessons while you train. While you do see your fair share of combat, some of your biggest obstacles in the field is the environment. I can't count how many casualties we took from fellow Legionaries taking a hit from heat exhaustion or dehydration. Some of the places we are sent to like in South America are so goddamn humid you can't even breathe. Would I say joining the legion was worth it? errrr only if you have nothing else to do with your life.

You do have to know French. There is a mandatory french course. They cram in down your throat for about a month, after which time you will speak a barely passable pidgin french- enough to follow basic orders.

you don't need to know french before you join they teach you, dumb fuck

Sounds interesting, I'd be most interested in going somewhere in Africa. Dunno why but Africa always fascinated me.
Do you have a say in where you'll be stationed?
Where do you live now?
Can you tell me about your experiences some more and in detail?
And how was your group? Were they reliable?

>>26152816
Close, Germany.

From the 2 weeks I've spent with legionnaires, this is the truest account you'll get. They are described as "rustic" by regular French soldiers, which basically means they have to operate with no resources, support or transport most of the time because they get sent first to every shit hole.

>>26152887
No. You are just sent to where ever you are needed. Most of the time you really don't see combat and in cases where we were station in North Africa, we are usually involved in hunting rebels for the local government. Used to live in Rouen, France for about 5 years. Then I went back to America after my divorce. Most of my group were from other European Countries. Some of them were also former Muslims too, looking for french citizen ship. There were some nice beaches in North Africa so it wasn't too bad there.South America however was fucking awful. Ton of mosquitoes, awful humidity, and no where to take a shit in, even in our outpost. We were mostly stationed there for training in jungle warfare which never came into practicality in field. Afghanistan usually involved us going on patrol (I was stationed in Jalalabad back in 2006). Sometimes we would encounter our American and British Allies. Normally really hot but it does snow in the winter which is nice since the Taliban doesn't do a lot a fighting when its really cold.

You could have been healthy as a child. You could have been born without asthma or with a higher lung capacity. You could have not spent your developmental years as a neet.
>>
>>26153028
At least you would die with honor. But then again, as I mentioned before, the environment is probably the biggest danger to your mortality than anything.

>>26153055
Drink plenty of water. Sometimes, you just have to be well adjusted for the heat. Most of the non-arab legionaries never spent a day outside on a hot summer day and as a result, pass out from the intensity of the heat. Managing you hydration levels while you are out there is very important, especially when you are carrying your rifle, equipment, etc. You also have to be really healthy too (no junk food). Summertimes in Europe is nothing compared to the average weather in Africa or South America. Afghanistan was the only place I was station in where the weather was bearable at best.

They seem to be treated like shit by the command because they are assumed to have done something wrong in their country of origin. The always follow orders without complaining, but they all have a kind of depressed, defeated look in their eyes that makes you feel like they are repressing all kinds of negative thoughts and that they wish they wouldn't be there.

French culture romanticize them a lot though, calling them "ones who became brothers not because they shared blood, but because they gave blood" and shit like that. Just don't expect that kind of respect in practice.

Most of this thread is horrible bullshit streamed from a romantic image of legion in the 60s and before, popular media and bullshit anons heard somewhere.

For the last 10-20 years, FFL is relatively standard western army, only with added foreign aspect and many traditions (some interesting, some glorious and mostly retarded shit which haunt every legionnaire like having perfectly sharp ironed uniforms 100% time.

The training is more brutal, yes, but no more "marche ou creve" (march or die) conditions there. Remember, you are volunteer. Also basic is somewhat different from caporal to caporal.

Tl;dr - don't listen to the faggots here, check out Cervens forum and go there. Bonne chance you fuck.
>>
>>26153145
this.

I of course joined for the experience, many of the others joined in for a chance of a better life. None of my fellow Legionaries were criminals from what I know. Either way, the DI make sure to pull whatever humanity you have out of you. They do this because you cannot have any secondary feelings on the battlefield. You have to rely on your legionaries and your sanity to pull you through your objectives. Its the same with any military. Training is suppose to prepare you to die for your country without any hesitation. Though I would argue most of the stuff you learn on the field is more important than what you learn in training.

>>26153179
If you are planning to do a complete 180 then perhaps joining the legion may lead your life in a new direction. If you are not willing to change your mindset or habits, then you are going to get your ass handed to you on day 1.

>If you are planning to do a complete 180

I dont see how a robot would posess necessary physical fitness to join the legion. As far as I know they're only taking in exemplary healthy individuals with perfect genes so common shit like minimal scoliosis or a slightly varicose vein will get you disqualified.

You know, shit that almost everyone leading a sedantary lifestyle has.

Does having military exp before trying to join the frenchs.would be better?
>>
>>26153434
It helps. Makes basic training way more easier. The majority of the recruits don't have prior military experience however.
