This is a link to the (English language translation page) recruitment process:
The recruitment process is rapid - if you pass, you will be on your way to basic training in less than four weeks.
You will be being paid from the day you sign your contract (early on in the process).
 
Happy New Year from 2 REP.

The other chap I think is Bertrand de la Chesnais, recently appointed as Zemmour's campaign director.

A career officer, he retired as Général de Corps d'Armée, and held the post of MGAT, 2IC of the French Army (Major Général de l'Armée de Terre). He conceived and put in place Op Sentinelle after the January 2015 attacks.
He has been requested by mail from the Ministère de Défense to retire
He has not answered back yet
Ministère de Défense can make him do so but it takes time (appeals)
