You should JESUS. Albeit your likely to get disspointed. the French Legion as an organization is are nothing like the legendary band of soldiers that they were a few decades ago, that romantized view is gone. Today they have been reduced to a standardized elite troop, with shitty french equipment, operating in counter-insurgency missions in africa, and serving in french colonies. They have nothing of the good ole charming glory of the 20th century, despite having misfits among their ranks.
Yeah, and I reckon they kind of fell out of favor after that attempted coup in the 60s. Apparently De Gaulle took that personally.
Listen to me, baby, you got to understand, you're old enough to learn the makings of a man.
