Canadian looking to join

#1
hey all - any tips for a 20 yr old canadian/swede looking to join the Legion? Ive read up on selection requirements and a lot of threads on here talking about what to say & don't say to get in and i think physically im good as well as mentally but i have had some problems with the law which im not going to go into. also does religion and background matter? i come from a jewish family but im not very religious. hopefully this wont impact my chances becuse i really want to join the legion seems like my best chance tos start over

A lot of Muslims have joined the legion mate, if they did then Jews definitely can. According to the official website, they do not care about religion or beliefs. Btw, I thought anti-semitism is dead and long gone from Europe

Article 2 of the Legion Code of Honour:

Chaque légionnaire est ton frère d’armes, quelle que soit sa nationalité, sa race ou sa religion. Tu lui manifestes toujours la solidarité étroite qui doit unir les membres d’une même famille.

Translated:
Each legionnaire is your brother in arms whatever his nationality, his race or his religion might be. You show him the same close solidarity that links the members of the same family.

you would think so but i heard that selection is relly difficult and i dont want anything to stop my chance. plus i also read that the interview is done by someone called the Gestapo and that the legion took many SS in after ww2 so that they still sing songs from nazi germany. someone on youtube even said that they dont want jews or arabs in it. is this true or am i worrying over nothing

Hi Jb and welcome
Can you do 7 proper pull ups or more ? It begins with this
Do you speak french as many canadiens do ? If so, its an advantage
What is your scolar level?
What are your work expériences ?
Height and weight ?
Teeth problems ?
Will you eat pork ?
If you are not religeous, sure you can
Do not mention, previous delinquences, will serve you none and learn to shut the fk up. It will help a lot
Do not mention your jewish back ground and do not put X in the, " i do not eat pork" questionnaire box. Can only stigmatise and you never know the interviewers view point
If you make it to Aubange
Keep your hands out of your pockets at all times (not even to scratch your balls )
Do not slouch
Do not drag your feet
Reply, "present",when your name is called and add the rank (present, caporal chef. .etc ) and loudly so he hears
Be quick to respond. ..when told, come here or go there. ..it's chop chop no fkn about, we haven't got all day. Capito ?
No asking stupid or irrelevant questions but listen good
Do not get to familiar with the other wannabes. ..most or all, you will never see again (dont tell them your life story and do not ask theirs. .they are probally bull shitting)
Remember this
Physical tests
Medical tests
IQ / logical tests
Security screening
Work détails / corvée / cleaning duties. ..you excell, you shine brighter than the other wannabe stars, capito
Buy a return ticket. ..just in case
Have you understood ?

Can't tell you how happy I am that I understood le code d'honneur du legionnaire without reading the translation ^____^
JB I never heard about these things you are saying, never take your info from a youtube video without at least double checking the references (if there are no references then don't even watch!) The greens here surely will confirm/deny the truth about what you are saying but I don't think at all that this is true. There are Muslim/Jewish legionnaires. If you eat pork and drink alcohol you are good to go.

There is and always have been, Jews and Muslims in the Legion. ..more Muslims than Jews, sure
Néo nazies racists ? There might be a few and they maybe have rank too. ..and ? Deal with it
Do not voice : political, religeous or hateful opinions to no one, even to the biggest SOB on earth. Keep your cool and dignity. Do not get your self noticed in an un nécessaire way. Your opinions / beliefs are private

thanks guys that rlly helps sounds like if i keep quiet about eeverything except how much i want to be selected that i can make it. le petit caporal you are a legionnaire now? i am very physically strong and no health problems minus mistakes i made in the past i think i am perfect for the legion. will the interview try to find out a lot about me or are the questions pretty easy

I was a legionnaire and now i am a wannabe civilian that just cant make the break
Your motivation or détermination, call it what you want, are your best buddies : going to and during your time in the Legion
He, the interviewer, will try and find out as much as possible about you, in the short period of time allocated. ..time is on your side and he has many others to interview

Don't watch or believe anything on Youtube with regards to Ryan French Foreign legion ultimate guide or whatever he's calling himself. There are always some idiots that will say stupid shit but thats in every organization. 95% of people wont give a damn if your Jewish or whatever you call your god. Gestapo is a nickname, DSPLE is the official name, you're worrying about nothing mate.
