A bit surprised to hear the Lt-Col at the beginning of the video saying that 75% of the legionnaire request a contract renewal, after the first five years.

  • All non-commissioned officers in the Foreign Legion begin their career as ordinary legionnaires.
  • Training staff: 1 non-commissioned officer for 4 legionnaires.
  • Out of 4 legionnaires recruited today, one will eventually become a non-commissioned officer.
    that is taken from foreign legion recruitment website.
    I guess if you keep these points in mind they tell you that actually it is the other way around like 25% only continue. I mean any legionnaire will eventually become an NCO if he renews his contract say 5 more years unless he is a complete nut head and gets his contract terminated.
    I am glad I am not the only one who got surprised when he said this :D

Very right and it is outstanding packaging Mon Caporal. 75% ask to re-enlist, shows the Legion has a professional core of around 25% NCOs, SNCOs, and Officers.

In the video I saw that a retired Legionnaire after 17.5 years is entitled to 40 Annuities? What is 40 Annuities?

opens rights to and for your pension
So, it's your pension. I/we are eligible for our pension for 20-years of service. It's either 40% to 50% of your base salary (Base Salary is Key here) not all of the other pay such as a housing allowance and meal allowance for Marines whom are married. My pension is about $1,500 USD per month. For every year past 20 you add another 2.5% for a maximum of 75% of Base pay at 30-years of service.
