I have a question. I used the search button but still unclear: what's the job that is closest to CSAR? I was checking out the 1st Foreign Engineer Regiment's units and saw a job titled “Specialized Operational Search Group (Fouille Opérationnelle Spécialisée). Is this having to do with labouring or is the general "paramedic" job the closest you can get to something like CSAR?
There are no CSAR units per se in the Legion, although you may have a situation where Legion elements are called in as support troop in a CSAR mission (I’m thinking in particular, but not only, of GCP of 2[sup]e[/sup] REP).
“Fouille opérationnelle spécialiséeâ€￾ (Military Search) has nothing to do with CSAR. The objective is to have military units trained in forensic techniques to collect elements available on the ground that will provide intelligence on the enemy, a bit like some specialised police officers who investigate crime scenes.

Off to Aubagne tomorrow. Wanted to say thanks for the information and that if I'm determined and lucky enough to make it through selection, I've set my eyes on the 2e REG and the 13e DBLE... More importantly before that, I'm determined to walk before I can run by passing the statistically difficult selection process and the wintery hell at Castel. Best of luck to you all and hopefully you don't hear from me for a good while. Merci et au revoir.

Note: Dusaboss, get your a** over to France! Quit Gulas (goulash) and Pivo and start running! Throw my 50 euros in with the lot.

All the best Murikan89. Give it all you've got when you have to and have patience when you need it. As you say, I hope we don't hear from you for a couple of months.
