The sunsets are amazing. Everynight. California, idk... But I am going to be stationed in Laredo, TX. I leave wednesday, so I can let you know how that is in the near future. But I have been to TX Several times & I love it.
    Awesome man congrats - shoot me a PM when you get settled down there and let me know how it is - I'd appreciate it!

I can apply to more than one of those locations? Speaking of locations, what geographic area of the three is considered the nicest to live in: Cali, Arizona, or Texas? I would be moving to the other side of the country for this job if I get it and I'd rather not live in a dumpy area if I didnt have to. Thanks for any help!
      If you're looking for information about the Border Patrol Agent position and geographic locations in which you may be stationed, head over to honorfirst.com and browse the site a bit. You will find EVERYTHING you need right there. The site is operated by a retired BPA with TONS of knowledge of CBP. You can also sign up for the forums, which are frequented by current agents as well as current applicants. Be aware though, if you plan on posting to the forum, make sure you have searched for your answer before posting a question. The members will hammer you about using the search function. Also, be sure to double check your post for spelling, grammar and punctuation mistakes. It is a professional forum where this stuff is taken VERY seriously.

      Good Luck!

        • I have seen some posts about Tucson area being much better than Yuma. I have never been to Arizona, so can someone give me an idea of why one is so much better than the other? Thanks in advance.

            Tucson is a much larger city than Yuma... so you get to partake in civilization to a much larger degree.

                    Yeah the gentleman I was speaking with even remarked that its rare for them to offer this location, as I was already thinking I might get stationed in AZ. I am from the North Orange County area and I created a timeline for your reference.
