I'm not sure this is legitimate, but it's an interesting variation on the "bike chained to a tree before the war" pic.

Couple of shots of security in France about two weeks after the Belgium attacks. There were a few bearded soldiers about, and they seemed to be more senior than the typical 20-year-old rifleman. I got curious and looked this up. Turns out the Foreign Legion sappers are allowed facial hair as a morale booster. It makes sense to put EOD guys out front considering the recent threats.
