I have a very special guest on for this week’s podcast. Retired French SAS operator Raymond. Raymond was born in Africa and moved to France during his teenage years. He eventually joined the Army and became a member of the French Foreign Legion. It was on a deployment with the Foreign Legion where he met members of the French SAS, France’s premier counter terrorism unit. We discussed his early life, the racism he experienced in France and in the Army being African. We touched on what effects terrorism has had on France as a nation, and many other topics.
