Today I leave for France. It’s my second official attempt to join the legion. First found out about the FFL in a Monestary in Spain. Always stuck with me. First unofficial attempt I was homeless in France. They didn’t even let me in the door. I think I might have smelled bad. Second attempt (first official) they took my passport asked me some basic questions, watched a video and had me do pull-ups. My mistake is I went all the way to France and straight to the legion. Was so exhausted from traveling I couldn’t do the minimum. They said I could come back after 3 months. I’ve decided to come back. I’m making a pilgrimage first and getting settled before I knock on the door. Whatever happens…happens.
