So as @MichaelShurkin and @Marsattaqueblog have asked me to compare my past experience in the #Legion and my ongoing experience with the @BritishArmy. This comparison will have a lot of caveats, both experiences being separated by almost a decade.
01/50 First, I have to mention that I joined the Legion first, with no prior military training. And I join the British Army after experiencing training in the Legion. You can see that, out of the 2 experiences, one is going to appear a lot easier than the other
02/50 The Legion I joined, though an all-volunteer force, was still equipped with conscription army materiel. I did training in plain green ‘satin 300’ combat fatigues, wore a steel pot (kevlar was only issued on ops). Webbing had minimal capacity (6 mags, cleaning kit, 1 bottle)

06/01/2019 - 78 years ago today, the longest-serving #UnitedStates #President, #Franklin D. #Roosevelt (#FDR) addressed the 77th #Congress with his "#Four #Freedoms" speech with the intent to shift #US #foreign #policy from that of #neutrality to #interventionist.
#FDR promoted the idea that the people of the world, in all nations, shared entitlement to four freedoms: that of the freedom of speech and expression, the freedom of worship, the freedom from want and the freedom from fear.
#FDR is arguably one of the most 'successful' #US Presidents. Some would argue that on the basis of his numerous social policies such as 'the New Deal'. Others, however, would argue that his role during the second world war was more prevalent to his success & everlasting legacy.
