The French Foreign Legion. Who hasn't held onto to some romantic notion where you can go and leave your past behind, start anew. French citizens can only join under an assumed identity, with a declared non-French nationality.
Of course, it's only open to men, so they wouldn't take me. Sigh.
The first thing I think of with the Légion étrangère is Snoopy, who held the rank of Sargent. Then I think of Brendan Fraser's character in The Mummy, Rick was a member.
Check out the web page. Indulge in a little fantasy... Desert sands and mystery.
I wonder how many Québécois join the legion? Serge, do you know?
Anyone else have a ridiculously silly and idealized notion about the Legion or some other military/governmental group?
