First of all, let me to introduce myself and to tell you why I’m creating this French Foreign Legion blog and what my aims are.
My story began eight years ago when I started to be interested in the army, especially the French Foreign Legion.
The first time when I have heard of this famous part of the French armed forces was a reportage on TV of the 3rd Foreign Infantry Regiment, based in French Guyana, in South America. It was in November 2011. The next few months I spent with getting more and more information of the recruitment process and I was trying to find out how could I became a Legionnaire. Two months later after I got enlisted when I put my Kepi blanc on my head, I decided, I’m going to write a blog of my adventures when I’m going to be experienced enough and be able to help others to make their dreams come real.
Now, you could ask why? Why do I want to help you?
When I was in Aubagne, and I was doing my tests I almost failed because I didn’t know how much do I have to run, how many pull-ups do I have to do and how to prepare myself for the interviews. In this blog, I am going to try to help you through my stories to get a first (and real) vision of the weekdays of a Legionnaire, increase your chances if you want to enlist and give you some good advices for the basic trainings. All the things I say are those I wanted to hear before enlisting.
