Lol yes I meant the Legion and that’s what primarily stopped me as well, fucking French, but I love/hate Africa and they get badass gear so lotta fun. Supposedly the comradire is really intense too. Yea I can stop another Marine across the room even if he’s 20 years older than me. Yep we love the fact we are Marines no doubt. I went to our Scout Sniper School it wasn’t for me, only school I attended that I hated. Marine Snipers are among the best on the planet but I like small units not a fan of 2 man team shit, I prefer DA or QRF and patrolling. Recon is obviously heavy on two many scouting OP/LPs but I really prefer to stay in fire team size elements. As for jumping don’t miss it a bit for me it was part of the job if I never jump or ride in a helicopter again I’ll be just fine. Be glad u never had to fuck with Ospreys brother. I will say that the other branch’s birds didn’t bother me as much as the Corps did we just have old gear low budget shit, awesome pilots and crews but most of if not all of the USMC choppers I was on were older than myself at the time some A LOT OLDER. You look at Navy Sea Stallions and AF Pave Lows vs anything carrying troops by the Corps and it’s comical. I can’t even imagine what the difference in gear is now. I’ve heard stories about Army Aviation and it’s just a step above our shit but again that’s where we often feel “special” bc we always did more with less ALWAYS. I almost almost joined the Army after I got out the Corps. I’m sure I’d be dead if I had but it woulda been nice. I know AF chow hall had ice sculptures and fruit crave into animals and shit where we had a fucking salad bar that if it had peanut butter paks on it or A-1 sauce we were jazzed. I served in a lot of shitholes though so who knows. I was never billeted somewhere with a Pizza Hut or a Taco Bell I know it’s all changed. I’ve heard there’s a fucking McDonalds on some Carriers. Tuna mre and Copenhagen and I’m happyHaha love the part about the Marines, it's so true even in my country. Even online signing every post with Semper Fi and stuff. I may sound fucked in the head but I kinda enjoyed being in Afghanistan. Not the heat but somehow the tension made me my best me if you know what I mean. I've had training in Norway where our balls pretty much froze off, been in Belize where my balls sweated off which sucked as well, of course desert training and parachuting which was my favorite, wouldn't trade it for the world. I was a green beret in my country by the way, specialized as a sniper.
If by FFL you mean the French then hell yeah I thought about it haha. I just don't speak one word of their shit language which at the time stopped me from applying.
