      • Yeah, so far Michigan is the only place that I've heard has received recent TOs.

          Well there are 2 medals: gwot service medal and gwot expeditionary medal for actually going overseas. You need the 2nd one for vet points.

            You do qualify as long as you meet this. I had no expeditionary medal, and I got my 5 points from this:
            "For more than 180 consecutive days, any part of which occurred during the period beginning September 11, 2001, and ending on the date prescribed by Presidential proclamation or by law as the last day of Operation Iraqi Freedom"
            You didn't have to serve in any area, just as long as you were in for 180 consecutive days during this period.

                I think anyone who did a full military term with an honorable discharge should get the 5 points. I mean they are called "veterans" points, not "some, certain, select" veteran points

                  have you got your DD214 verfied by them yet? you might just get the 5 pts simply just claimed it on the online application. usually the agencies given the points to who has the expediationary medal/purpal heart etc. or service related disability.

                    I agree, its not guaranteed until they get your 214. Im almost positive it has to be an expeditionary medal for the war on terrorism to count

                    • Where's the Calls?????

                      I've notice no activity for any schools for FY09. My guess is MHC is awaiting the fy09 training budget/money before filling CBP Basic Training after September 2008 (end of fy08 training budget/funds).

                      IMHO, that's why we haven't been seeing anyone getting "The Call".

                      • Classes are still scheduled on normal basis. Atleast 1 every two weeks. The last class I heard starting was October 2ish (not sure on the exact date).

                          Huh?

                          'Law enforcement sensitive' isn't a clearance. Law enforcement sensitive refers to material that's sensitive but unclassified.

                          CBPO's are vetted before hiring to recieve TS clearances, IF NEEDED.

                          Most CBPO's never have their clearances activated, as most officers have no need to access classified documents or computer databases.

                          Your right about them doing a seperate BI. CBP will run with their own BI as if he never had one.

                            Ha ha, yeah thats what i was getting at but my words got twisted. I was just trying to tell the guy that a military clearance has nothing to do with CBP's

                                The only thing that having an expeditionary medal would get you is that you would not have had to fill the 180 day requirement. If you read this it says "or" after each one, not "and."
                                5-Point Preference (TP)

                                Five points are added to the passing examination score or rating of a veteran who served:

                                During a war; or
                                During the period April 28, 1952 through July 1, 1955; or

                                For more than 180 consecutive days, other than for training, any part of which occurred after January 31, 1955, and before October 15, 1976; or

                                During the Gulf War from August 2, 1990, through January 2, 1992; or

                                For more than 180 consecutive days, other than for training, any part of which occurred during the period beginning September 11, 2001, and ending on the date prescribed by Presidential proclamation or by law as the last day of Operation Iraqi Freedom; or

                                In a campaign or expedition for which a campaign medal has been authorized. Any Armed Forces Expeditionary medal or campaign badge, including El Salvador, Lebanon, Grenada, Panama, Southwest Asia, Somalia, and Haiti, qualifies for preference.
