Military Review

Lithuanian serviceman named the difference between service in the Lithuanian Armed Forces and service in the French Foreign Legion

111

The Lithuanian Ministry of Defense publishes a material that presents an opinion on the military service in the republican armed forces of one of the military personnel. This is Karolis Tendziagolskis, who, which attracts attention, at first served not in the Lithuanian Armed Forces, but in the Foreign Legion of the French Army.


Lithuanian soldier:

I volunteered for the Lithuanian army. But before that I served in the French Foreign Legion. I got there when I was 18 years old. In my eight years of service with this French formation, I have been involved in many operations.

According to Tendzyagolskis, at first he served in the engineering unit, then he was transferred to the infantry.

He was asked about the differences between service in the Lithuanian Armed Forces and the French Foreign Legion.

A Lithuanian soldier named this difference:
The tasks and daily activities of the army unit in Lithuania and France differ significantly. The French Foreign Legion has a very long and strict tradition that is still followed. I feel a big difference in the exercises I did there and I do here. If the Lithuanian army is preparing more for defensive battles, then in France, first of all, they think about the offensive, about attacks, including battles with a "non-standard" enemy.

Lithuanian journalists asked why, after 8 years of service in the Foreign Legion of France, he returned to his homeland and began serving in the Lithuanian armed forces.

Karolis Tendziagolskis said that he originally planned to connect his future with Lithuania, and therefore, "returned, gaining experience and knowledge."

The soldier said that he now serves in the reconnaissance company of the mechanized infantry brigade "Iron Wolf", he has "the skills of survival in difficult conditions, deep knowledge of topography, the ability to navigate well on the ground."

Karolis Tendzyagolskis:

I plan to get a non-commissioned officer rank and share my knowledge and skills with Lithuanian soldiers. First of all, one should not be afraid to pay off one's debt to Lithuania.

This interview has a clear propaganda subtext, since recently in Lithuania, after the restoration of the conscription system, there has been a decline in the number of those wishing to serve in the Lithuanian army. Many are simply afraid to join the army and end up signing a contract, since the Lithuanian military continues to be used in NATO operations far beyond Lithuania itself - from Africa to Iraq and Afghanistan.

    I wonder what kind of operation this boy is talking about?))))
    According to his term of service, he could “participate” in Mali (2013) and Iraq (2016). It seemed to me that the "set" is much more than two!))) How wrong I was.)))

      And after eight years in the Legion, he plans to become only a non-commissioned officer (sergeant, sergeant major in ours)?

            If you look closely at the text, you will see that the status (position) is obtained from the text. OFFICER, not a sergeant, but officers are trained for 3-4-5 years. And in our opinion, officers and sergeants are different strata of the army with different goals, tasks, duties and rights.
            Thank you for your attention. laughing

          A warrant officer, like a warrant officer. But in any case, a person who has undergone very strong training can become a junior commander in his army in a much shorter time. Maybe their vacancies are packed for ten years ahead. Vaughn, talking with one Uzbek, says so that we have to go to the contract as a private, we still have to give a bribe.

      The French Legion are colonial assassins and they are recruited for such business .. They are there without a clan, without a tribe! Found something to brag about and compare a naive Lithuanian boy .. Why is the "world community" keeping quiet about this, there are such units in the United States too .. And in Russia now, but not as explicitly and cynically as the French. These are essentially killers, which are thrown into Africa and they burn and destroy everything ..

      Obviously the kid counts business trips, not wars. So that "operations", "missions", "shares" may well accumulate in eight years. And so the kid must be experienced. Interestingly, how much of such a contingent is in the ranks of the perebalts?

      ========
      In fact, these are only "official" conflicts, but in the Middle East and especially in Africa (where, in fact, the Foreign Legion is mainly conducting operations), there could be many "small" operations that are carried out by the MTR, incl. and the formation of IL.

      Your irony is understandable, but you shouldn't confuse the place of service and operations, let alone the number of them. For a couple of years in Afghanistan, for example, you could take part in dozens of operations

This whip claims to have served in the Legion since the age of 18. I don’t know the country where they are hired from the age of 17, and even for one year.

            You don't have to serve in the army to join a foreign legion. This can be done from the age of 18, or from 17 with the permission of the parents (written).

        Do you think that the French command in the legion decided for 8 years that they didn’t need it? Eight years in the Legion is a huge time. Even just serving there at checkpoints, not to mention the battles. Russian somehow gave an interview as a former fighter of the legion. A bit quite like that. does not fit with your (general here) vision of what kind of organization it is and how to serve there.

      Citizenship after serving in the IL has not been given automatically for a long time. You need a civilian profession (to acquire it), then the employer, during the service, to deduct taxes in France, to which, too, not everyone agrees (less money remains on hand).

        After three years of service, any legionnaire can obtain French citizenship, and it will be issued without any reservations... Service in a foreign legion gives advantages when entering universities in France, and 15 years of service - the right to receive a pension, but only for those who have become a French citizen.

            Well, "reservations" from your own site:
            A foreign legionnaire can apply for French citizenship after three years of service. If he serves well, he will first receive the right to a residence permit, citizenship will be given to him conditionally. This is usually bestowed on the condition that he serves well and has proven his willingness to integrate into the French nation.

            Naturally, drug addicts and those who have committed crimes in the legion will not be given citizenship - any country would do this in relation to any migrant.

              This is yours originally. Citizenship will be given "if the conditions are met" (conditionally, I read it in English. A conditional period is, but not citizenship, which is a legal connection between a person and the state)) There are all sorts of conditions. The fact that it is not easy to get it has long been known.

    Many are simply afraid to join the army and end up signing a contract, since the Lithuanian military continues to be used in NATO operations far beyond Lithuania itself - from Africa to Iraq and Afghanistan.

            However, the service is "no year for a week", and the whole chest is in orders, pads to the navel. It looks like even the Order of Merit for the Fatherland.

    8 years in the legion is a mandatory first five-year contract plus a second minimum contract for 3 years, which means that two contracts were completely rammed off, most likely or were commissioned for injury or injury from the second, which is unlikely once again in the ranks, albeit in their own army. The fact that they were transferred from engineers to the infantry speaks of low qualifications and professional aptitude, but nevertheless, after 6 years of service in the infantry, he received the title of "corporal-cook", that is, he became a senior corporal (patch on the right sleeve). From corporals of a foreign legion to a non-commissioned officer of the Latvian army, why not? According to NATO classification, the requirements for a non-commissioned officer are quite consistent with the requirements for our newly-made lieutenant. He was awarded the Medal of Appreciation of the Nation with the North African bar, the Colonial Medal with the bar, which means that he participated in military operations, and, in my opinion, the National Defense Medal with the bar for Africa. So you can laugh, or you can admit that even if this is a propaganda step, nevertheless, the Latvians acquired an intelligent sergeant with combat experience.

      He probably made them after his dismissal, because his "war paint" is too surprising.
      I saw Scottish shooters in Berlin with their shirt sleeves and skirts rolled up, so they had a relatively small tattoo of the regimental coat of arms on their forearms, moreover, from the outside of the forearm. But that was when they were standing in West Berlin, and then there was still no such wild fashion for tattoos.
