La Legion etrangere a perdu l'un des siens

Le 9 janvier, la 13e DBLE (demi-brigade de Légion étrangère) rendait les honneurs militaires au caporal-chef Michel Biega, décédé le 28 décembre 2018, à La Cavalerie, à l’âge de 57 ans et plus de 28 ans de service à la Légion étrangère, au 2e REI, au 3e REI et au 1er RE notamment, ainsi bien sûr qu’à la 13e DBLE. Ses camarades étaient présents, ainsi que de nombreux Cavalériens, dont le maire François Rodriguez et des élus municipaux, pour lui rendre un dernier hommage.

Le caporal-chef Biega était l’un des premiers légionnaires arrivés sur le plateau du Larzac pour lancer l’installation de la Phalange magnifique. Dès le mois de janvier 2016, il était à la tâche pour participer à la montée en puissance du régiment, la dernière mission qu’il a menée avec sa bonne humeur coutumière et son dévouement discret.

Passé par de nombreuses unités Légion, il a été inhumé près de son dernier régiment, selon ses dernières volontés. Il repose désormais en terre aveyronnaise et sur ce plateau du Larzac qu’il avait appris à aimer. Il a rejoint le cimetière de La Cavalerie, village où il s’était fait beaucoup d’amis, en attendant le futur Carré légion que la municipalité va créer en liaison avec le régiment.

RIP. I knew this guy from many videos and pics. He was kind of poster boy for legon. Pity he gone too soon. Anyone know cause of death?

Apparently he was in the Legion for 16 years. Name of Antony Cox.
Like the report, hardman Cox who Rose to the rank of Commander. :unsure:
Could be a true story but "Commander"? Mind you it's the sun.

I wonder if armies spice up lil bit stories like this one. Deeds done by this and other similar men are already amazing by itself , but I wouldn't be surprised if they add up little into it.
From ancient times and beginnings of organized wars all armies had some heroes about whom stories were told usually bing pumped up in process sometimes to such heights that is really hard to believe in their truthfulness.
But, they were always great morale boosters for the troops.

Did you
That... makes a certain sense.

The Uni I attended has an exchange program with a Catholic University in the Vendée. Every spring, we'd get a few students from that school for a semester. I had classes with some of them; others I met because I minored in French, and the French students were occasionally invited to our classes, conversation tables, and French club meetings.

When you could get anything out of them about politics, their opinions were usually surprisingly conservative. Well, except for one chick who, upon being asked which US President had the greatest influence on American history replied "Obama". (Who was in office at the the time). Gorgeous hazel eyes, but a hazel nut for a brain, that one.

Then there was 'Hurricane' Hugo, who nearly had to be deported.

Other than that, though, those kids tended to be pretty right-wing and religious.
Did you see that St. Tammany Parish is going to begin French Immersion Language next school year, it's about time our heritage is coming back, not Fecking Spanish
