Hello from the states everyone. So, I'm in a bit of an awkward situation where my time in the Army National Guard and ROTC(please don't laugh) will be coming to an end here a bit shorter than intended. Now the situation isn't completely over yet, so there's still some chance I can continue to serve but it's unlikely. I won't get into the specifics, but I made a childish mistake that got taken very much out of context. Anyways, I've been interested in the Legion for well on a year now, and I always joked with my buddies that I'd run off and join if I ever got in trouble, and it seems a big opportunity possibly lies before me!

Now for a bit about myself. I'm in my early 20's and grew up, I guess I still am growing, in the rocky mountains hunting, fishing, skiing, and other general outdoor stuff. I was wrestler and have been doing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu(teach beginners even) for 8 or 9 years now, and in recent months I've been getting into weight lifting. Let me be clear though, I'm no super athlete or anything but I think I'm fit. I'm an 11B Infantry in the National Guard, and if I could go back I'd have gone Active Duty instead of gone to college and ROTC where I get bored and into trouble. When I was younger I had a major hip surgery, from a football injury, and had a metal pin placed into my hip(it's still there), but I've never had any problems and was able to get through MEPS to join the Army without hiding the fact I had the surgery.

If I get a second chance with the National Guard I'd like to learn from the experiences of the fine people of this forum, and if I get the boot I'd like to maybe take my shot at the Legion. Now if I were to attempt to join the Legion I'd maybe like to finish my bachelors degree beforehand since I've only got maybe 1 1/2 years to go, but I also really hate school and know I'll get bored easily.

I can do 7 pull-ups fine
I can swim all day(in still water)
I can ruck fine, but I've never gone over 12 miles
I can run a 2mile at around 13minutes
Luc Leger sounds like an American Beep Test, and I can do that
Anything else I should watch out for physically?
My French is non-existent, except for "Rendezvous" that's a common word here

The Legion sounds like a good challenge and adventure for a boy who grew up in a relatively soft environment, and I think I really need something like this to actually feel alive(sounds corny, but that's how it feels).
