    Hey Everyone,

    I had my first day at San Luis, AZ (Customs). It was awesome!!! I think I will really like it there. If anyone gets offered San Luis, they should take it. It's not a very big port, but there is plenty of action. Everyone there is really nice and helpful.
    Hey Z, I had my first day today, as well. It was pretty dull. Nothing but paperwork and a ride to the port director's office to get sworn in. I saw another group of trainees that I knew, however, and they had just gotten back from firearms training! Something to look forward to after all the paperwork.

      Hey,

      I had tons of paperwork too. Nothing very exciting, but I'm just happy with the location and port. Saw a few things somewhat exciting though (for a new guy), but can't really explain (told everything we see in the port stays in the port). We have firearms training this Friday, looking forward to that.

      • Hey BowHunter and OPjr, glad you guys are having fun! I'm excited for you both!

        I'm at a standstill wondering when the BI will contact me. I haven't been scheduled for a poly (knock on wood) so I'm thankful for that. But I think my BI will take longer than usual since I served in the Peace Corps. I can just imagine an investigator trying to contact my host family in that tiny town in the middle of Bolivia. LOL
        And the battle against proper pushups continues. Blah.

                  I'll be there at the same time as you. If worst comes to worst we can find a place and split rent for the month. PM me and let me know when/where you have your PFT2 and if we are in the same place we can discuss it further there.

                    The list is definitely getting shorter. I EOD in 13 days in Detroit. Waiting since April '08.

                    We need CMUnupe to get hired...he has been waiting longer than I was....

                              I spoke with someone in IA yesterday. They didn't have me in the system (some mix up). But she did tell me that out of BPA and CBPO, CBPO is placed on priority.

                                I have my pft2 in WV. I'm on LI. If they had offered me Plattsburgh I would have chosen it but the closest they offered is WV.
