The American Foreign Legion

Say what!?

The American Foreign Legion, just like the French one.

It's not as far-fetched as it sounds. In fact, here's where I got the idea - a Canadian perspective on it.

Me? I'm sorta neutral about it. I mean all the services are meeting their recruting goals, so is there really a problem?

But, I've been out of uniform a tad over twenty years and I recall that the US military welcomes foreign national recruits. In fact, I believe that service in our military helps them move to the front of the line in the citizenship process. Which in my book is only fair.
