              Hey guys!!!

              Yes I made it through as well. I really don't want to comment any on the difficulty levels or demands, considering the tragedy that occured and ongoing investigation, as well as the fact that i'm still in subjection to the "powers" in Selma.

              I'll simply say that the training is very challenging, and I am extremely impressed with the caliber of the department and academy instructors. It makes me want to be a trooper even more. I have absolutely NO intentions of quitting.

              They were 110% supportive of us during last week's occurance. I can honestly say that DPS has gone above and beyond here in Selma to make sure EVERYONE is taken care of and is coping with the situation. As you can imagine, it was very upsetting to most of us, especially when you consider the fact that we were in day two.

              Along with our fallen classmate, one member of 08-B dropped out either Monday or Tuesday, and another injured himself during the PT test 1.5 run and had to leave. Three new recruits were brought in Wednesday morning as replacements, and one of those individuals quit Saturday. Right now, we are at 39 folks. 21 in 08-B and 18 in 08-A lateral.

              Please keep the Johnston family, the instructors in Selma, as well as the 08-A and B classes in your prayers. It has been a difficult two weeks for all of us.

              As far as the October class, all i've heard is that it's "still up in the air."

              If you have any specific questions Jason about the academy, it may be better for you to PM one of us. Again, considering what has happened and what the future may hold, we are having to be very careful about what we say in public concerning both the academy itself and what happened last week.

              Graduation is November 21. I can't wait!!!

                  No, everyone who quit was in the 08-B full length class. The original 18 are still in 08-A (lateral).

                      Glad to hear that you all survived the first 10 days of your trooper academy!! I'm gearing up for the start of the GA STate Patrol academy on July 6! I know it'll be difficult but I'm ready for a challenge! My motivation continues to mount as I think about the possibility of having to come back to my current agency which is definitely not something I want to do! Congrats again on making it through the first 10 days!

                        For the most part we are separate in the classroom. It just depends on what we're studying at the time. We started out all together, but since Monday they have split us up for most of the classes.

                            I was wondering is the feeling that they are trying to run you off or are that they just wanting to see if you can handle the pressure?
