Hey Pink Floyd, good start. You've got the pitch, just need now to write the screenplay and find the right producer... :)

(...) And the other being that you have to learn the code d'honneur:

By the way, for the anecdote, there's a common spelling error often seen in the Legion code of honor. Pronunciation will be the same (one of the difficulties of the French language), but Article 2 should read “Chaque légionnaire est ton frère d'armes, quelles que soient sa race, sa nationalité ou sa religion”. Plural is necessary, because the verb applies to three names (race, nationalité and religion).
Note to myself : send a mail to the General COMLE, to get this corrected... :D

I can imagine a new recruit willing to play the smart-ass and telling the “cabo-chef” that there's a spelling mistake in the little Code of Honor leaflet distributed at the farm...
– What the f*ck are you telling me?
Oui caporal-chef, I'm positive, I read this on the Cervens board.
– The what ?!!

There's a word (heard it before on Questions for a Champion). What do you call the élève / student that corrects the prof ? Serious question, btw.

OK but you ain't getting me Joe. And I don't blame you for that. If someone telling me same story as I do to you for ... how many? 2-3 years now. I would very suspicious too. As I said I don't blame you and I don't ask from you to believe me.
Maybe I will join maybe I never will...I don't know that my self.

And yes, I don't really care about my image here which would be drastically changed if I get accepted.
No worries mate. You just take it as you feel

Joining the Legion to fight for France is pretty dumb as a foreigner. Does any foreigner join for that reason? Joining for an adventure, learning to be a soldier, personal security and the possibility of an EU passport seem to be the main reasons why men join.
have you ever been a soldier?
