3e REI: USAF general visited the legionnaires

A few days ago, the French Foreign Legion launched an official video showing general Raymond from the US Air Force Space Command (AFSPC) during his visit to the Guiana Space Center (Centre spatial guyanais, CSG) located near Kourou, French Guiana and protected by the 3rd Foreign Infantry Regiment (3e REI).

General Raymond came to see the CSG on 27 May 2015. During his visit, the general got acquainted with the 3e REI and its mission to protect the Space Center, under the terms of Operation Titan. The AFSPC is planning to launch some US satellites from Guiana’s CSG space center in the near future.
