“…And combat ? If you have seen Rambo you have seen it all – always coming to the rescue when one of our teams gets in trouble, and always in the shortest delay. That is one of their tricks : they switchÂ from T-shirt and sandals to combat ready in three minutes…”
This is a great piece of writing, translated from a French soldier’s own blogÂ or journal. The kind words he speaks are not surprising to any of us that know the quality of our soldiers, however to hear a soldier from another country say it really means a lot. He is also a French soldier, which I can say are always a cut above the image that their country portrays. I have met with and spent some time with French soldiers before and they have always impressed me. It made me laugh to talk about his size compared to the Americans. The ones I have met have always been small in stature and seem small and skinny. In fact the ones that I met on Camp Phoenix in Afghanistan were some of the tallest I had ever seen. They did like to walk around in those shorty short satin FM shorts though. Never could figure that out.
