        I had the chance to work with a detail officer from the local PD. He happens to rotate with another sergeant on the oral board, and one of the things he would talk about is appearance. He said that they can sum up the person as soon as the walk in by the way they walk, talk, and dress. A person in (matching) suit and tie will win everyday over someone that isn't.

            Nah, all you need to look professional during the physical abilities test is your cammies, Marine.

              Speaking of the physical agiltiy test, there was a guy when i took it who had navy seals sweat pants and t-shirt. Bragging to everyone he was in the seals. Then they guy does not finish the swim, and i think he passed the 2 laps on the track but then failed the course. i had to shake my head but it was a site to see. it would have been like al bundy trying out for a pro football team.

                just, before someone yells at me for my username, i'll let it be known that i am not, nor ever have been a Marine. The name was for an online game i used to play about 12 years ago and i've used it ever since.

                          I am not signalling LCPLPunk out by any means, however, I have heard alot of that since OIF/OEF. IMHO this tile should reflect "active, armed fighting with enemy forces". Just being deployed OCONUS doesn't make one a combat vet. A troop who spent his entire time within the FOB claimed 'combat vet' to me? Again, utmost respect for anyone who is or have served no matter what their job.

                          Pardon the thread hijack.

                            The waiting game! Dun dun dun DUUUUUUNNNNN.

                            Well my BI called me again to let me know to tell my current employer and tell them that i applied for a job with BSO and that they would be giving them a call. My office admin told me they called and she is faxing over a form to them that she filled out and she wished me good luck. So i have not heard anything yet? The BI said just to wait for a call from HR. so i will pray to get a call next week then i guess! Any BSO LEO's have any input on how long it would take to get a call after BI finishes with the final reference?
