Can you offer tips on how to ensure being accepted?
>be a roman citizen, preferably patrician>be able to march 25 miles every day in full battle gear while holding shield upright>supply your own armor and equipment >if you're not a brainlet you should pick up engineering skills pretty quickly and do your part in the daily construction/teardown of the fort
>>50814487Only answer ever neededAlso, give it up OPShitskin infested France is not worth it anymore
>>50814563Pretty much this,I'm french and I don't think my country is worth fighting for nowadays
>>50814581Typical French surrendering. Fight back.
>>50814581>I haet my country sooo much, theirs 2 many brown ppl lol xD>>>/pol/
>>50814654>I lurve my country sooo much, theirs so many brown ppl lol xD
>>50814654>>50814619Not him, nor French but it's a problem involving the entire West. It's exactly /pol/ that encourages this mindless "hurrdurr fight for your country you drone!" attitude. Meanwhile, why would a straight white man fight for a country that calls him the devil's spawn and blames him for everything? A man fights for something worth protecting. He will fight for his life, he will fight for his property, he will even fight because some bozo called his mom a cunt. He will not fight for a regime that spits on him and tells him he's privileged for getting spat on. Once Europe inevitably falls, I'll be among the first to shout "Allahu Ackbar". At least Islam treats their men right and their women how they should be treated: like property.
>>50814269apparently they only take desperate as fuck slavs and africans who know they have nowhere better to go because they're the only ones who a) deal with the abuse they're gonna get b) don't mind being treated like shit c) won't complain and just run off when they had enough of it allyou're better off asking /k/ as well
I'm an ex Legionnaire from Guinea-Bissau, I got out a few years ago.You will:>clean like a slave for hours for no reason>only PT is running>eat <500 calories per day in training, and <1000 at regiment>almost never do any combat training or shooting>stand around for hours doing nothing>get exploited by your command>if you speak Russian, Spanish or Nepalese you will have friends but as a white euro you're fucked - same goes for black Africans (me)The ONLY reason to join Legion is if you are a criminal and need a new identity. If you want a French passport apply for citizenship the normal way it will probably be quicker and definitely far less painful. If you're joining for combat, forget about it; the Legion hasn't shot at anyone in years and likely won't for a long time yet. If you're joining for the /fit/ aspect forget about it, all legionnaires look like marathon runners/auschwitz survivors except for the ones on roids.Don't listen to anyone unless they can prove they were in the Legion, because they will be wrong.
ill probably give it shot god knows i have nothing going for me.
>>50814952Who knew Beau Travail was an accurate film.
>>50814269Train Luc Léger, do some pullups and pushups.
>>50814269You'll be required to learn French. French is a fucking hard language to learn if you didn't learn a little growing up.
>>50815097French is literally English with more complex grammar. If you speak English you already know half of the French vocabulary.
>>>/k/There is a thread about recruitment.
>>50815155I'm an Australian living in the French speaking part of Switzerland for the last 5 years. Trust me, it isn't as easy as you make it out to be.
>>50814269Legion is pretty based desu, i like the fact that you swear your loyalty to the legion itself and not the country. However, from what i heard legionnaires are scumbags as they tend to have a shitty past and they are basically send everywhere they dont want to send actual troops so they seem to be disposable if you will, i dont recommend
>>50814952>eat <500 calories per day in trainingWhat the fuck? That's like, one medium sized meal for the entire day. Aren't legionaires supposted to be strong? How do you keep up your strength with so few calories?>>50815225>are basically send everywhere they dont want to send actual troopsYeah, they are mercenaries after all. America does the same with PMCs. It's said that if you here America is deploying X troops in a certain area of the world, you should mentally multiply that number by three to account for the mercs.
>>50815225Yeah they send Legion where regular French Army doesn't want to go, not because the Legion is 'disposable' but more so because they are incompetent and can't be trusted with actual fighting. They do a lot of OP Sentinel (patrolling France) and fuck around in Guyana.>>50815392Yes you wither away and starve. Legion are not Mercs they are French Army, commanded by French generals.
>>50815208I'm French. The language isn't that hard for everyday use. It has tons of specific rules and exceptions that don't make any sense, but at least it doesn't have declensions or stuff like that. If you know the gender of most words, basic conjugation and grammar you're fine.
>>50815587It's your mother tongue so of course you'll find it easy. It's like a Chinese person not understanding why you're having such a hard time learning Mandarin.
>>50815611>incompetentffl or actual french army?
I once farted on a door handle
>>50815852FFL. I've worked with other armies and they're better funded, better trained, much fitter, better lead and more disciplined than we ever were. Other armies have camaraderie whereas we have a dog-eat-dog attitude and ethnic gang culture.
>>50815906What regiment were you in? Are all regiments equally incompetent?What about 2REP and GCP?
>>50814680>It's exactly /pol/ that encourages this mindless "hurrdurr fight for your country you drone!" attitude.Lol no it fucking doesn't. Have you ever spent time one /pol/? Every 2nd post on /pol/ is mocking people for fight for jews/pol/ is very firmly in the camp of "our nations are done for so work on yourself and your family/friends, prepare for the worst"
>>50814952Why are white euros fucked? I heard there was a decent number of brits/americans/South Africans who applied.
>>508160002REGEvery Repman thinks he's SF and GCP is under a platoon strength, and only about as good as, say American airborne infantry. In reality 2REP is shit because you can't leave Corsica, they are retardedly strict, like bootcamp-tier strict for your whole service, and these days the whole regiment is run by the Russian mafia.
>>50815208I'm a kiwi in NZ and I've picked it up pretty quickly. The hardest part is learning to differenciate the sounds, after that it just takes time. It's definitely harder than it's made out to be, I've found it harder than Spanish and german
>>50816091Why did you join?Also why do you think the legion is in the state it is in? In the past it was known for producing very high caliber soldiers, perhaps when the legion became a part of the French army properly?
>>50816057Assuming you're a white euro?You will have no friends except for the handful of Finns, Germans, saffers/namibs/zim whites who join. Americans pretty much never get accepted and Brits it's even harder.
>>50815392>one medium sized mealIt's one fucking burger.
>>50816119I'm from Guinea-Bissau, it's one of the poorest countries in the world. I tried to emigrate to Brazil, then to Portugal, but got both my applications rejected because I didn't have any kind of useful qualifications. I don't believe in illegal immigration like all the other blacks in Europe, so in the end I said "fuck it" and flew to France to join the Legion knowing in 5 years I'd have a new passport.If I had my time again I wouldn't have joined the Legion it wasn't worth it.
>>50816091how about desertion? i heard alot just say fuck it and leave
>>50816179>>50816238like what would happen if you fucked off
>>50816238>dessert.exe #ver1>sit on plane>go home>shitpost>dessert.exe #ver2>be retard>get caught>1 month getting fucked in the ass instead of 5 years>released
>>50816126But why is it dog eat dog? its not like you're all fighting for a promotion, youre stuck with each other for 5 years so why is there no comradery.Why don't Americans and brits get accepted? They don't make the cut? Also how old were most recruits
>>50814269Yeah, just make sure to bring Caesars Mark to the fort, don't meet up with Ambassador Crocker after shooting up the tops
>>50816363The people who join are savages, little more than animals. You promote to CPL, you can order another man to clean under your bed, buy you beer, clean your rifle, or carry your backpack. Imagine going from potato farmer in Belarus making €150 per month and then suddenly you are a Legionnaire making €1200 and after 2 years you get to order people around with absolute power. It's like going from being a prisoner to prison guard.
>>50816324sounds too easy to be true
>>50816439You'd be unable to access any of the money you earned, and with your passport still being held by the Legion you'd have to somehow get to your country's embassy to get a new one, though from what I've heard as long as you don't try to desert with your rifle nobody is going to look for you too hard. If you get caught at any point you'll be dragged back and get your ass kicked in the brig for a couple of months, after which you'll be let go. If you do manage to escape you'll be arrested upon entering France.
>>50816505wait you cant spend your salary? lmao what the fuck
>>50814952I never thought I'd say this to a nigger, but you are based, good luck
>>50814269go straight to aubagnehave a clean urinereach at least 6 in the luc leger10 pullupsthe most important thing is the psychological/motivational interview, when they ask how long you want to serve say "lifetime" I sayd only 5 years and was later told this disqualified me, tell them you have no interest in civilian life , that you hate your family and have nowhere else to go.also go on december when they have the lowest influx hence the highest chance.
>>50816560I'm usually on /k/ but I check this board every now and again. It's amazing how easily I, an African, can integrate with Europe when all one has to do is obey laws; people are so receptive.
>>50816883ya got any pics or Instagram?
>>50816883Have you ever dated o are you considering dating a white woman?
>>50816883I like you soldier. We can be friends.
>>50816883Yeah people usually dont expect much from niggers, so even the bare minimum is impressive
>>50817290Not doxxing myself as there are plenty of guys in the Legion who would gladly pay me a visit to hand out some wall-to-wall counselling.Here's my equipe on OP Sentinel. Photo was taken by the chef de groupe, you can see the guy on the left posing like a fucking faggot.
>>50817367I'm approaching 30yo boomer status but I'm currently banging a Portuguese girl 8 years younger than me. Gotta plant a seed and create Alberto Barbosa.>>50817455Back home people remember no meal but their last, and can think no further than their next. Transport that mentality, unchecked, to the 1st word; and you will surely have chaos. The only time in history when blacks have ever worked has been when they were in chains, or when they were educated...and the educated put the rest in chains and sold them to Arabs and Europeans.
>being such a loser you'd volunteer to fight for a country that is actively replacing it's populace with highway speed IQ AfricansLmao'ing at your life
>>50817765Given how much of a poverty-stricken shithole Bissau is, thinking further than your next meal is an achievement in itself, but as far as mentality goes I've seen worse African countries.
>>50816093I'm glad you're having more luck with it than I am. What are you using to learn?
Why not join your own country's military?I used to be one of these idiots even looking up flights, then someone on /fit/ talked some sense into meYour own country will treat you better, pay you better and likely has job opportunities to scratch your young man's itch for violence and adventure.
>>50816091isn't the engineer's regiment more lax and dont have to deal with the usual infantry shiet? do u go skating in the mountains and play with explosives and shiet?
>>50817900If people are looking to join the foreign legion, it's a pretty sure bet that they can't join their own military. There aren't any wars on and a lot of smaller countries are being real picky about recruitment.
>>50817985Thats not necessarily the case at all.Consider this: in your own country you will likely have access to a gym, in the legion less so.These threads are usually full of Americans too stupid to figure out what they should lie about to recruiters.
>>50814269I worked with a guy who had been kicked out of the US Marines for hitting an officer and going AWOL. He spent the next 20 years in the Legion before moving to Canada. He was crazy and borderline evil. Don't do it.
>>50814487dont forget, you must own a farm. plebs urbana not allowed, sulla did nothing wrong, marius was a disgusting novus homo!
>>50816612Everything he said.Minimum is 7 turns of Luc Leger and 4 pullups, but if you want to be sure do at least 10-12 turns of Luc Leger, and 10 full pullups, clean urine and not being a retard in the psychological test. Straight to Aubagne cause if you apply in other locations you'll still have to go to Aubagne. Bring your documentation, this isn't the 1930s you don't go there to run away from a life of crime, and anything more serious than say petty theft means you won't be taken in.You will get a new identity after joining and you can only get the old back after a year. For the first 2-3 months you will not be able to contact anyone, so if you leave family and friends behind tell them. Training is hard and gruesome but not as bad as some idiots here make it out to be. Most FFL units are held to be higher standard than the regular chlabors but that's due to harsher training and more missions. 2REP sounds cool but parachuting will fuck you up.
Pretty based legion dude telling redpills. I served alongside legionnaires (i think 2reg) for a short time in Lebanon and can honestly say our peasant reservist army is shitload more better equipped, skilled and motivated than legionnaires. They literally got cucked in every military competition etc. For the fucks sake, reservist army guys cucks a professional 24/7/5years army. The reason is ; reservist people are from all kinds of professionals like engineers, paramedics, police, fireman, construction workers, security guards etc. Every guy has passed many years of quality school and the army relies on individuals unlike the french shit 1800 aristorcatic faggot army. What i mean is our NCO:s have almost more authority than the common french officer, our "caporal" can make individually patrol plans and manage vechiles etc. In french army the shit is so hierarchic that you cannot even go talk to your commanding officer without going trough many and many chains of command. Shit like that makes the army limited as fuck. I dont blame the french too much tho, because professional army is not a smart guys place, all who adapt to light and sound will study themselfs to good paying civilian job and all the illirite fucks joins the army and i understand perfectly you cannot give them free hands to make plans. Pic kinda related, its from hot AF shooting range day. Scored pretty good scores and i am far from our lands professional level.
If I join the legion, will I get into combat? I want to kill some niggers lol
>>50817765>Gotta plant a seed and create Alberto Barbosa.Leave now
>>50818324France's only real deployments right now are operation Barkhane and Serval, and they're basically peacekeeping missions.France doesn't trust the Legion ever since the putsch in 1961. Now it's just a vestigial organ kept around for traditions' sake.
>>50814654t. faggot with AIDS
>>50817940Not as retarded 'disciplined' as rep but yeah you ski which was why I chose 2REG because I thought skiing was cool. >>50818340Hahahaha I'm more 4chan than I am Legionnaire or black...never got me anywhere good but I don't regret it.
>>50818567whats the difference between 2rei and 2reg apart from skiing tho, and did u go on any opex? out of all the regiments which would u consider the most professional and could u join the French army after getting citizenship or join something like GIGN? please answer all and thank you mr melanin enriched gentleman
>>50814269When you can comfortably run 10+km without getting physically taxed and practice the beep test a lot. Make sure you have good teeth etc. You are competing with the best of the selection and even having a rash of some kind might end up in dismissal even if you pass the tests perfectly. Also do not lie in the interview. Legion works with Interpol and secret service to dig out your past and they will know about your criminal background if you have one. Please remember that there are still tons of people from former eastern european countries. These guys are looking for salary as the countries are poor asf, not being a soldier...Best time to apply is Christmas time as this is most quiet time.
>>50818029He was/is a socio/psychopath in the first place. This is why he was violent and constantly thinking about murder like Ted Bundy's cousin. Not Legion's fault.
>>50818029This is what the legion wants, though. They want absolute dedication. They want guys with no ties back home that'll make them get homesick and ditch after two years. It's why they're also skeptical of guys who are clearly only applying for the paycheck. After a little while of getting slapped around by the NCOs, it's easy to reconsider working at your uncle's corner store.
>>50816883>when all one has to do is obey laws; people are so receptive.yeah that's the thing african's don't seem to do that too oftengodspeed to you though in your future
>>50819543I am already 45, what is the oldest accepted?
>>50814654>t.brown person in white countryIf brown people are so great why do they come to Europe or America rather than stay in their own shit hole countries?
>What i mean is our NCO:s have almost more authority than the common french officer, our "caporal" can make individually patrol plans and manage vechiles etc. In french army the shit is so hierarchic that you cannot even go talk to your commanding officer without going trough many and many chains of command. Shit like that makes the army limited as fuck. That's the same shit in every French corps, what do you think ranks are for? They're not just a pat on the head for being a good boy and extra money every month, you're actually supposed to have more responsibility with them.
>>50819595They say they take guys up until 39, but those are usually exceptions for absolute .001 percentile operators and doctors who are on the run from a bad lawsuit. These days they rarely take anyone older than 28, because they have such a large candidate pool for so few slots.>t. applying at 29 because of an assault charge that's basically fucked my life for a decade
>>50819711Don't worry about the assault charge. I had one and got convicted, then moved out to work in another country. In 5 years that marking will be gone from your register. Unless you killed someone of course. Just find work if you couldn't get in. Even some low end manual labor is okay, few years doesn't mean anything in one's life. Because life is mostly shit and full of assholes anyway.
btw, can you retire after 17 years of service like in the other French armies?
>>50819796Yeah, that's when the new pension starts. You'll still owe taxes on all your backpay for those 17 years, though. The fifth republic expects some back.
>>508190982REI has FELIN gear and VAB vehicles, it's also in the city so if you like to party etc. 2REG isn't really in the city but they have GCM where you get to do more soldiering stuff. I went on OP Sentinel but my career got seriously held back just because I'm a nigger, but that's life. No Mali or Afghanistan or Republic of Central Africa.
>>50819795I'm not about to kms over it or anything, I just wanted to be a soldier more than anything growing up and failed to get a waiver for it twice. I'm a categorically Smart Person and I'm perfectly fit, I just know I'd rather be part of a military outfit than bending sheet metal and installing windows. It's worth a try, at least. If nothing else, if they give me the boot immediately I can go see some shit in France before I come home.
>>50814269Why would you want to join a fighting force with such a gay ass uniform?You know they don't do shit with this fucking terrible useless uniform.
>>50820068There are maybe four good dress uniforms in the world. At least the weird epaulets and 30 foot sash have a story behind them and not just a design committee that said "yeah that looks cool". >army bring back pink and greens soon
>>50819951Don't feel bad, there were only ever a few thousand guys in Mali and they were all 13DBLE and shit. We live in the age of sneaky fuckers and illiterate hillfolk peasants.
>>50820012Just train for the selection because why not do your 100%? Sounds like you are not a legionnaire...
>>50820302I've been training for it for eight months and my plane ticket is for October. My pull ups and runs are fine, I got lasik on my weaker eye, and I've been taking french classes. I'm also reading the Douglas Porch history of the legion so I know about the organization. I've just read the acceptance statistics and I know that they're not interested in another oldish white american with some college experience, no matter how motivated he is. There are plenty of rejected legionnaires who "wanted it more than anything".
>>50818039Based and boni-pilled
>>50817765>50817367 #I'm approaching 30yo boomer status but I'm currently banging a Portuguese girl 8 years younger than me. Gotta plant a seed and create Alberto Barbosa.Goddamn fuck off stop it dont no
>>50820383Yeah well. You can always start a security or bail bond company and say you are "a former Legionnaire". People in US are quite gullible when it comes to lies. Look at Theranos and how the bitch scammed Robert Murdoch and Mr. Shulz etc. Good luck!
>>50820607Nah mate I'm a delivery driver, so full time employed. I've got a rifle, ammo and plate carrier in case the rioters fuck up my city. If any nigger comes through my door I'm won't hesitate to light him the fuck up.
