A Norwegian wannabe

#1
Hello!
I am a 24 year old from Norway who really want to just join the legion, but I have my doubts about my chances.

I use glasses, but can still se good at close range without them.
I have a daughter (2), but I and the mother is getting really bad relations and have had since she was born.
I have absolutely nothing on my criminal record and was 3 years in the Norwegian National Guards youth program, and served 1 year in the Royal Norwegian Navy.

But the last few years has only been failed attempts at everything and I honestly just want to go back to the military, but Norway is so small so almost impossible to join here.
But I don't speak French, but I speak English and Norwegian fluent, and started French now.

I am in good shape to get in, but my teeth isn't perfect.

So I would really like to know how it all looks from your point of view, because I wanted this for years, but postponed and never went because all stupid kinds of reasons, but no more

Hi, Tayvyer and welcome
Glasses. ..maybe! you will be controlled and depending on results, the medicin chef decides
2 year old daughter ? Do not even think about talking of her to the Legion (she isnt your priorité, for the instant. ..maybe later (and even then ) No room for sentimentals
You say, you balls up, evry thing you do. ...Seriously, Do you really belive the Legion is for you ?
Why are your teeth in a bad way ?
Do you do drugs of any kind ? Have you a problem with alchol ? Are you lazy, if so, i think i know why
Keep us informed

Yes I do sir. Thanks to be that much concerned about me, but believe me, none of that will influence me servitude with honor and fidelity!!! :):D:)
Dusa, I think Andy le petit caporal was replying to Tayver.
Tayvyer, I'd think long and hard about joining the legion. You will definitely miss your daughter growing up. Any problems with your teeth should be sorted out before you go.

There was another Norwegian guy here last month who said he was about to join the legion in the end of February. I have no idea if he went.

Do some reading and stuff, as the legion is quite a comittment. Stoeng (nordlending med 15 år i legionen) has some interesting views on Norwegians in the legion...:D

Tayver,

Welcome to the forum. Have you considered the Norwegian Merchant Navy ?
It may be presumtious but personally I don't think the Legion is for you.
Good luck in all your endeavours.

I checked the glasses page here, and looked like I was whitin, hopefully.
yes, she is not, her mother won't let me see her so nothing there at all, so no real attachment, but in blood.
Yes, school, maths, just not the soscial type, few friends, but close to my family. The military is the only thing I did well in
Caries, but easily fixed with a dentist visit.

Not lazy, work in construction now, never tried drugs, clean slate, never been much of a drinker, maybe once a month, never smoked and stayed healthy.

I am sorry for intruding your personal space, but shouldn't your main fight now is to be able to have even a couple of hours per week with your daughter? I grew up without a father sir, he is alive and he lives 3 km away from me and let me tell you sir that literally destroyed my childhood and my teenage. It's not too late for your daughter.

Gentlemen,

Thank God I had no forum to bleat on. Self/family blitzed out WW2. Children's home/adopted. Lucky 'Yes'.
Never moaned, never bitter. Just got on with life. No use in self pity.
Seize life by the balls and treasure every moment, 'good or bad'.

Finally any Wannabe wanting to join the FFL don't debate it 'ad nauseam' simply GO.

99% need not apply. But I did !

PS. Dusaboss I confirm my original offer giving you a one month window as of today.

Well, I live half a country away, with a mother who works to keep her away from me, so, I have tried all, but Norwegian legal system is against me there unfortunately.


Chas, I will, in summer after having finished all with the dentist, I am coming to join. Will learn some french till then

Tayvier,
Just do what your mind is telling you to do. Don’t listen to these naysayer, know all, bleu bits. I jumped ship in Dakar at the age of 16, in 1957, joined the legion, became a decorated paratrooper beforeI was 18 during the Algerian war, and never looked back. Tell them in good Norwegian; kyss meg i ræva!

Good luck to you landsmann.

Our doubts are traitors,

And make us lose the good we oft might win,

By fearing to attempt."

Hi Joe, just been minding my own frigging business for a while + getting a bit long in the tooth, soon up the apples, probably.
