|French Foreign Legion Honour Guard|

- No felons
- No new citizenship under new identity
- Most applicants are rejected
The mortality rate of the Legion is around 10% over the past century and as a much smaller force than it formerly was, they only accept about one in eight candidates, so even if you think you qualify, there's a good chance you'll be rejected.
If you still want to give it a try, I recommend reading Life in the French Foreign Legion: How to Join and What to Expect When You Get There.
