Hi y’all. I’ll give a brief intro. I’m a US citizen from the southeast, prior military, and I’m currently a professional Firefighter. I’m aspiring and have been saving and prepping to try and join the legion. This sight seems to be a good resource so I’m here for information and to share experience.

Welcome to the forum. Check out the sticky's and search function for info. Also check out the threads by BuffaloBillCody, he recently went through selection and placed in 2Rep. His threads give an insight into the current state of the Legion.

I’ll bet. It’s all briars, thick brush, and hillsides out here. The humidity just adds to the suck. I heard it’s tough out there.
