    I won't be getting on any police agencies anytime soon.

    I can't say what unit I'm with, but I've been given orders for another round in the sandbox. We begin our training very very soon and our actual "Boots on the Ground" time starts right after.

    To those that have provided advice on how to get hired for road patrol, thank you. To those that are still trying themselves, never give up, you'll eventually make it.

    Good luck to everyone, be safe!!!

            First off, thanks for serving! If this country could get more guys to do what your doing, this would be a much better place. While the LE field is appealing and fun, what you are doing IMO,is much more important. Also IMO it will also make you a much more appealing applicant when you return. If you get a chance, smoke one of those radicals for me. If I were younger, I wouldn't be missing Iraq or Afghanistan for the world. I have a son who is active duty Army (South Korea) on his third year, he just reenlisted last month and will be leaving Korea soon. He will probably end up at one of those places. Another relative by marriage (www.andyhoughton.org) was KIA in Iraq. I have the utmost respect for all Americans who serve. Do let us know how you are doing, if you can. Do be careful and take care!

            PM me please.

                    Thanks everyone. As odd as it is, I'm excited about going, my department doesn't pay any of it's rank and file officers very well, this will increase my pay by about $26,000 a year. The pay is one of the many tangible benefits of service, there are many more intangibles. Such as getting the honor of re-enlisting while deployed to a combat zone.

                    The decision of re-enlisting into the National Guard or staying Active Duty will be left up to Mrs. 3Charles. Either way, I'm staying in.
