Hello everyone ! thank you for the add
Hi shirly, why not post a bit about yourself in the Welcome ! introduce yourself. I realize that you're not going to join any time in in the future, however we'd all like to hear from you?
What's your French like, I only ask because I'm looking for a Mod for my new facebook page. As always there isn't too much enthusiasm for anything new on here.
Of course I understand that with your line of work you won't have much time on your hands.

let's hear for :

Lucas J


You might want to alter your "about you" before you post anymore.

For all, try and remember that this is an open forum. If you put your mug on here, and say anything that you will regret later, that is just what will happen you will regret it.
And heaven forbid, if you put your name on next to it.

Shirly,
Welcome to the forum and enjoy it.
You may even have to read the odd boring post from me. ;)

Ok, let's give warm welcome to:

You may want to be careful of stating your reasons why you want to join on an open forum.

Apart from Himalayan, we never hear from them. Could this be a forum that they join in order to communicate amont themselves by PM? Dusa who is the forum's complot expert, any opinions?

& then there's

Legios

who is from Turkey.

&

Dwuane Hare

Who is from the US. Please tell me that that is not your name.

It says Madanthapa is from Croatia??? but it's Nepalese name...

As for Shy Nepalis ... I don't know maybe is something in their culture.
I think that have to do something with language barrier, but isn't totally understandable because google translate doing pretty decent job today. So its easy for anyone to communicate through it. At least if you translating to and from English.

If they cannot communicate in English which is their country's second language then they're going to know their @rses from their elbows when they get to Castel and have to in French, no google translate available.
Castel isn't too bad, because there is a degree of tolerance towards the language barrier, however once they get to their regiments they will be expected to understand the next day's orders. The Sgt's and even the Cpls will quickly get p$ssed off with them when they have to get someone to translate each time.

Everyone talks about the number of US or Brits who get refused because they have too much to go back to. I wonder how many Asians, who have nothing to go back to get refused because they are considered "brain dead".
That is a legion description of someone who has very little personality, a follower, someone who will do his time, get a cushy job in the stores or be a waiter in the mess.

In todays legion, you are expected to rise to the rank of Cpl in 3 years. I believe that that is one of the criteria that they are looking in Aubagne.

Didn't know that Nepalese speak English. I guess than there is some other reason why they won't to hang out with us here...
Maybe someone from Nepal can tell us more about this?
