French Foreign Legion Visit

Members of the elite French Foreign Legion are conducting operations in a neighboring province. In order to share information and build cohesion we invited the Legionnaires to FOB Mehtar Lam for a visit. In this photo, Captain Nicholas Moran, TF Wildhorse S-3 plans (Operations Plans) discusses our area of interest with the Legionnaires. The Foreign Legion has a long and distinguished history. It is best known for accepting citizens from other countries who are willing to fight for France. It is also made up of French citizens (about 25%) and mostly commanded by French officers.
