Greetings,

I am a 25 year old US Army Veteran who hasn’t been able to land on his feet since leaving military service. I have tattoos on my hands so my nation won’t take me even with a waiver. I’ve always been fascinated with the Legion and respected their history. With that being said, I’m pretty desperate to do thisI am currently homeless and saving up money at my job to purchase a plane ticket and get my passport renewed. I plan to leave in about 3 months time from now in order to arrive for the winter season.

I’d prefer no judgement on my past. Thank you for the plethora of knowledge this forum provides for wannabes such as myself.

I hope I am accepted.

Attempted suicide is any thing but 'wise'...it's, 'desparation'

Just be honest and tell them all on your interview and you would be fine.


Pineland? If that means what I think it means, I'd definitely tell them that part. No need to reveal that here; or too much of your personal data, really. Not sure if the Legion keeps tabs here, but it pays to be careful.

I wouldn't tell them about the suicide attempt, personally. Especially if there are no visible scars. The personal tragedies, the hitting rock-bottom, the homelessness-- that's likely fine, but the suicide attempt I'd keep mum about.

Good luck bro, I hope everything works out. "Robin Sage" is an interesting name to have picked. I hope it went well for you.
