Hi Meir, welcome to the forum. You must be able to serve anywhere in the world, I think that's the major concern for the FFL, and that means also being able to eat their rations. I have read from Aaron of legionstories.com that when he did selection, aspiring EVs were given a shot to test for allergies to the additives used in French MREs. It is safe to suppose that severe allergic reactions to the shot is a reason for exclusion. It all depends from the severity of your condition, you mention intollerance to certain foods which can be mild and also, disappear after continuous exposure. How bad is it?

Hi Meir, You first joined on the forum back in 2012, nearly ten years later you have one last question before joining (a second time !).
Are you sure that your allergy to milk isn't to do with your religion?

o_O:eek::oops:

and I quote from another post from you :3. if im eating halal/kosher food can i find the suitable meat for me at the Legion ? Unquote
I know that there is something about milk only coming from a Kosher animal rules and that they cannot be eaten with meat.
Basically you're wasting your time and ours and the legion's.

That's right i asked about it before, about milk there's nothing to do with the religion...
And my last time in Aubagne was almost 7 years ago so i do remember some muslims there so i was interested to know about it...
Although i have no plans to order food like in a restaurant, that was just to make sure that i medically still fit for the Legion...

Why joining the FFL and not staying in the IDF? That's a hell of an army to serve in, I bet plenty of combat opportunity and interesting soldiering to be done.
Man that's right, but i already served IDF as truck driver long ago, for the IDF i'm too old (only reserve service optional)
