Yeah, but you said. "Our friend in service for two weeks now.". You mean he have 2 more weeks until end of contract?
No Dusa, two weeks into I believe it is Vigipirate. Almost 5 full years in service and he will re-enlist for more. So, he is close to starting his 6th year of service. You need to get going Dusa, the sand in the hour glass is running out on you, go and get it done.

Caporal, when he finishes this, he has stage to attend for CCh, as I understand it. So at nearly 5 years service he is doing quite well, never once in Legion Jail. I know some consider it a badge of honor, the Caporal does not and neither do I. Especially, when it comes to converting to one’s given name and a hope at citizenship.

so was his comments on here and other places(i won´t name) just banter or has the Legion moulded him? it must have changed him because if as you say he will sign on again and given that the Legion let him.
I know he can´t speak for himself as he is banned.

I think one of the most important things to remember here is no matter what Service you are in USMC, the Legion, UK it always changes and the same tradition is always carried forward from one generation to the next. Finally, all of us whom have served know we are all Alphas and there is always varied opinions far different than on remembers as “Back in My Day.” Well, it is not our day anymore

Look, I am good friends with the Caporal and he is doing quite well and serving. He is a Brother to all of us especially those whom has served, and no one should want to disparage another who has served, Dusa on the other hand, he is free game, that is until his feet are in the yellow footprints

No not banter, just blunt, from my perspective. But has the Legion molded him, yes to an extent, they never tamed the spirit and that is important. We all age and grow wiser.

In the French military and the Legion in particular, there is an 'expression' - for want of a better word - mauvais esprit which translates word for word, bad spirit = bad attitude. The fact that he has signed on again I would think that it had more to do with his goal of getting his French nationality, than actually being proud to serve the Legion.
He did not have one good word of encouragement to those who were going to serve. If anyone is interested, look up his name, then click on his logo, underneath you will see 'messages'. Not really worth the read, but in case you are interested.
Matured? He joined at 30 odd years old.
As for him passing Cch, there is no course per se. When he has three years of rank as a Cch, he can be considered to go on his ( the name escapes me for the moment) which is a concours or contest. When I went on mine, we were 181 (of which 24 were from the REP) for only 80 places. We were 11 to have passed from the REP. It means that once you have 15 years service you can wear a kepi noir.
With DCXLVI being in a more relaxed regiment and in a support company, his rank of Cch will not stand for much. It will mean less corvées is all. Because yes, in the support company, as a caporal he will be doing corvées the same as a legionnaire 2nd classe in a combat company.
For those of you who join and see the greener grass in the support company: knocking off at regular hours, doing lots less service such as guard duties, going out on field exercise 'perhaps' twice a year. Most weekends off. It's worth noting that once you are in there, than you can practically say good bye to any OPEXs. DCXLVI's highlights are now wandering around the streets of some city in France.
