Off duty PAs here have been in OIS and many other incidents. When you go to work in uniform you need to at least where a cover shirt and you should always be armed and ready for anything at anytime. Complacency can get you killed.
      And always be wary of the ones that seem friendly...

        • I was told to tell them that you work for the department of homeland security. For some reason they love that answer.

          • Ditto on the locals. Some people just don't like us. In general, I'd say we aren't popular amongst border communities. The reasons for that though could fill multiple leather-bound books.

              Yeah try that... You can say you work for the federal gov. and most will respond with "Oh, so you're Border Patrol?"

                May I PM you, or e-mail you at some address, Sir?

                    • Hey guys I have a question about the Financial Disclosure on the E-Qip. Where do I disclose my student loans? I currently am still in school so they are deferred untill I finish my degree. I thought I could answer under the financial disclosure form but I have put no for the a-p section because I have no bad debt. Do I have to disclose those loans and where can I write it in. In order for me to write it in under financial disclosure I have to answer yes to any question a-p. I was thinking of writting it under the additional comments page. Sorry if this was confusing but the lady on the phone didnt know what to tell me either.Thanks guys. Good luck with the process

                      • Can anyone on here shed some light on the transfer process? I've seen a few posts prior stating how difficult it is to transfer, but is it just as difficult to transfer to somewhere like Detroit? I can't imagine a huge demand to head that way.

                          you'd be surprised.

                          As far as being liked by the locals go, it is really case by case. It varies from state to state and community to community but you'll learn that some vendors embrace Border Patrol and our money, while others don't care for us. It isn't black or white. I know restaurants that offer discounts to agents in uniform, I know restaurants that have poisoned agents, and I also know of restaurants that really don't give a $%^@. You'll learn which ones you should avoid.

                          Generally though, the rule of thumb is to try to minimize your exposure. It reduces your risk of theft and being targeted for corruption.

                          • Are there many CBP opportunities up North? (Wisconsin/Montanna/etc.)
                            Or does nearly everyone get sent to the US/Mexico border?
