    • definitely legion! france doesen't send teenage french boys to fight in a shitty country on the other side of the planet, that's the legions job! I am kinda scared of those guys and in a war I'd really like them on my side...

    • I don't think this is the legion, maybe the 1st inf. regiment (the oldest regiment on earth). Most of french troops in afghanistan are not from the legion (but Marine Paras, Chasseurs Alpins, inf...). There's only a few Legion units. Is omebody can tell us more about this vid...

    • Well, I bet most countries have a regiment they say is the oldest, we have livgardet in Sweden which is said to be the oldest still operational regiment in the world. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Life_Guards_(Swedish_Army)

  • Also notable is the marching pace of the Legion. In comparison to the 120-step-per-minute pace of other French units, the Legion has an 88-step-per-minute marching speed. It is also referred by Legionnaires as the crawl. This can be seen at ceremonial parades and public displays attended by the Legion, particularly while parading in Paris on 14 July (Bastille Day). Because of the impressively slow pace, which Legionnaires refer to as the "crawl", the Legion is always the last unit marc More..

  • They will soon be singing in the Kapissa Province, as Sarkozy just receive from Obama two NATO Command then in return the French will creat a Brigade with all of the troops that are actually deployed in Afghanistan.

  • It's NOT legion. Legionnaires have green bérets.

    TrailerBob, the french assault weapon they have is the FAMAS (Fusil d'Assaut de la Manufacture d'Armes de St Etienne) our home made kick ass recoiless 5.56mm automatic rifle.

  • Enough of the French bashing already! They are there and are fighting. Give them a break for crying out loud. Direct your hostilities at the enemy and not your ally.

  • Thank you to the brave French troops who are fighting in Afghanistan.

    I will always remember the day last year when 10 French soldiers were killed in a single attack.

    To any French readers, please know that most Americans are proud to serve alongside your soldiers.

  • OKAY. JUST TO CLEAR THINGS UP A LITTLE BIT.

    THIS GUYS ARE PART OF SOME RIMa (RÉGIMENT d'INFANTERIE DE MARINE = MARINE INFANTRY).
    THE BLUE BERET WITH A GOLDEN ANCHOR CLEARLY SHOWS THIS.
    I DON'T KNOW WHICH ONE THOUGH.

    THEY ARE NO RPIMa (MARINE INFANTRY PARAS), I WOULD DEFINATELY RECOGNIZE THE BERET BECAUSE I SERVED IN ONE (3° RPIMa).

    THE SONG THEY SING IS CALLED "NO TOKU HERE" A TAHITIAN SONG. IN THE FRENCH COLONIAL UNITS MANY TAHITIAN SONGS ARE SUNG, BECAUSE MANY TAHITIANS SERVED IN More..

  • Attribué officiellement au 2e Bataillon Etranger de Parachutistes, en 1948, En 1957, le béret vert devient la coiffure officielle de tous les régiments étrangers de parachutiste. En 1959, il devient la coiffure de repos et d'exercice de toutes les unités de Légion étrangère.

    Le béret se porte avec l'insigne à droite comme dans le reste de l'armée de terre (ne pas confondre avec les commandos de marine qui eux, le portent à gauche, en souvenir de leur origine du "4 Commando" britanni More..

  • It's like a haunting melody, like you would see or hear in World War I or II.

  • Hilarious to see all the ignorant Americans go on about how the French are "cowards" and always "surrender".

    Don't you see how disrespectful you are? THEY ARE HELPING YOU! IN YOUR WAR! this isn't Frances war, it's Americas war. Yet their sons and daughters are their fighting for America, yet you call them cowards.
    You fucking Americans should just be grateful any countries are prepared to stand by you, cause you'd be right up shit creek if we weren't helping you.

    • Nice way to generalize.. "all the ignorant Americans."

      I respect the French regular army and the French Foreign Legion.

      Too bad this thread has turned into nothing but ignorant nationalism all around.
