Excellent vid Tittos, Thanks! Tested my French but hey at least I got the gist of it, I always find it admirable how the Training Cadre do the runs and such with the EVs.

The Legion guy tells the Spanish guy. "you do 4 pull-ups". The Spanish guy mumbles something. The Legion guys says, “you do 4 pull-ups, otherwise c'est fini (it's over)”. The off comment explains that if the Spaniard can't make 4... He will not get passed the door.

1. The documentary posted by Tittos, “Légionnaires : à l'école du courage”, has 4 parts, the first 2 parts are about “Stage international Jaguar” in French Guiana, the other 2 parts are about the recruitment process in Aubagne and the basic training until the EV's get their képi blanc and become legionnaires.

2. On the same youtube channel there is a new documentary “Légion étrangère : de l’engagement au combat.”

Pendant plusieurs mois, Cécile de Ménibus était au cœur du camp militaire de Raffalli, situé sur les communes de Calenzana et de Calvi, en Haute-Corse. Il abrite le 2e Régiment étranger de parachutistes (REP). Formation, entraînements, premier saut en parachute... c'est l'occasion de découvrir le processus de sélection - particulièrement sévère - des recrues qui auront le droit de porter le fameux képi blanc et de partir en opération. Chaque année, près de 10 000 jeunes tentent leur chance. Le document permet également d'en apprendre davantage sur les spécificités, les secrets et le code d'honneur de la Légion, le corps le plus convoité de l'Armée française.

Interesting to note in the first documentary posted by Tittos what happens to this American EV, Kraus (sp ?) who suffers a shoulder dislocation at farm Bel Air.
He’s sent back to Castelnaudary for treatment and there the doctors discover that he actually had a pre-existing condition that he hid during selection.
The guy is sent off for lying. End of story. So, think twice wannabes...

2 new documentaries:

Armée, à l’école de l’engagement - Episode 3 - Les soldats face à la montagne

Le Groupement Aguerrissement Montagne situé à Modane en Savoie forme les unités de l’armée dites « non alpines » qui souhaitent s’aguerrir aux techniques de combat en région montagneuse. Durant trois semaines, les stagiaires vont devoir s’acclimater au froid, parcourir de forts dénivelés et résister aux chutes de la pression atmosphérique en haute altitude.

Armée, à l’école de l’engagement - Episode 4 - Les combattants de la jungle

C’est au coeur de la jungle guyanaise française que se trouve le Centre d’Entrainement à la Forêt Équatoriale de l’Armée de Terre. Ici, les militaires apprennent à survivre à l’enfer vert. Nous allons suivre le parcours de quatre d’entre eux au cours de ce stage très éprouvant physiquement, mais aussi mentalement.

This night I plan to watch them and next week I'll be in Aubagne
