During May 25 – June 02, 2014, about 120 paratroopers from across the United States’ 82nd Airborne Division trained with the legionnaires from the 2nd Foreign Parachute Regiment (2e REP) of the Foreign Legion, on the island of Corsica, the 2e REP’s base.
The main mission of this exercise was to build a partnership between the two airborne units. The American and Legion’s paratroopers will also be authorized to wear the French and American parachutist badge on their uniforms.
