    I agree -- when I enlisted in 1988, most, if not all of the Frenchmen who didn't hold an officer position had enlisted as Belgians. But, apdst, I'm now curious -- did I read your post wrong, or did you say you were in the Legion?

    No, that was a typo. My mistake.

    Where you in the Legion? I toyed with the idea in my late teens and even went across to Paris for 3-4 weeks to consider it further. Never joined them though.
