The Devil in Mrs. Jones, Deep Throat and Debbie Does Dallas (Otherwise known as "Triple D")

Your goal should be to learn enough to get your girl qualified in all 3 drop zones. This will make you a better future Legionnaire, or so I have heard! ;)

Restrepo and all the bloody ones from the BBC regarding British troops in Afghanistan. They're so good.

Yes they can even go for the Swe para, I think the soldiers and officers dont like it.
But it have change alot in both FJS and KJ.
I was going to write something about me being doubtful about the physical standards and women concernig paras and marines but... As you said "a lot have changed".

Women are allowed to apply for KJ or FJS nowadays, but there is no affirmative action to get them into the units. They have to hack the tests like anybody else. No woman has yet been accepted into KJ (the "coastal rangers"). This I know for a fact. The FJS (paras) I'm not 100 % sure about, but strongly doubt it.

The physical demands for being accepted haven't really changed, however it is harder nowadays to find good enough recruits to fill the spots. PlayStation generation :) you know. KJ has also moved from being primarily a light infantry unit (with a lot of "kill"-attitude) as seen in the documentary to more of a recon/intel/SF kind of unit. Not softer, but different.

The documentary "Blod, svett och bajs".. hehe.. Pretty good watch, though there are some parts that are somewhat staged and obviously they weren't allowed to film everything that went on. Still a decent docu.

OnT: Restrepo and Triple D are my favourites ;)

A trailer of a new documentary about the Legion: March with the Devil. Haven`t watched the film yet. Has anybody?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KqRHRjY1TCE

It`s based on a new book "La Légion - Avec le 2ème REP au cœur des crises internationales" by Thomas Gast, an ex-Legionnaire from the 2eme REP.
