Bullshit, the former legionnaires that I have met snce then, in several countries, have been far more stable, normal and humourous than most other civilians I have met over the last 60 odd years. They all had a good grasp of life, while most civilians seemed to be a bit immature on many accounts relating to warfare. Just quoting plattitudes and myths that they had read somewhere.
Why bullsh$t? How can you really know?
When men were men... Eh?, 🙄

Maybe legionnaires are made of a tougher stuff than most other military personnel?

I think that it does. We already discussed on that subject here somewhere. I don't know if anyone did research but on first glance look like legionnaires are less prone to PTSD than other soldier. Maybe not less prone to a alcoholism but seems they usually don't drink because they wont to forget something. That drink becose F- feels good ;)

There is couple reason why is that. I'll write later

OK a respected Adj from the REP talks about it and a guy who has never been in any Army knows better. please stop it. There was a video i posted about an ex SAS guy who helps people with this. He himself suffers from it.

so did they teach this on your Uni course? :unsure: Do you think this is why some were shot because Lack of moral fibre, shell shock? just curious . I know what you are saying in your own words & opinion. you also never answered my question or point about screening new soldiers. surely it must be better now than say WW1/2. How can they improve it? Surely in this day and age we understand PTSD better. The OP did make a good point PTSD is not only in the military.
I have strong opinions, sometimes less is more! Hence no reply to your questions just can’t really be bothered debating it as your on the other side of the coin!

Nice one Bro. Just such a tricky subject and one I have debated many times in real life settings, it can make you less objective after time!
