Recent Legion deployments
I am interested to know what kind of engagements the Legion has been involved in recently, say since 2000 - particularly to hear from someone who knows.
There are the obvious - I assume that some Legion forces must have been deployed to Afghanistan, and to the more recent conflicts in West Africa. But even given that, what kind of role do they play there? Are there other, smaller conflicts they are involved in, that never make the news?
It seems that recently France's role in conflict, and by extension that of the Legion, is limited to peace-keeping operations. So have Legionaires recently seen open combat?
