    Arrow How to become an officer in the Legion?

    I have heard that for a legionnaire to become a NCO is very hard and for a foreigner to receive a commission is nearly impossible. Is it true?

    GO 'Search' and look up 'officier' but man ten to fifteen years is a minimum...saw a couple of senior NCOs who thought they would be promoted but by that time they had long lost their 'sens moral'....but there were three: Adj. Mihailov, Adj. Cazabat; Adj. Sklenak....
    Honi soit qui mal y pense et de la Légion étrangère.
    Damn those that think badly of it and the French Foreign Legion.
