  • How many of you served?

    Had a conversation recently with a dear friend.

    She told me about a conversation she had with someone who is AGAINST prior military being cops as they are "drones" and what not.

    I made the assertation that a majority (say, 55% or so) of cops served in some form or fashion.

    So I ask, did you serve in the military? (Coast Guard/Merchant Marines count)
    246
    Yes
    70.33%
    173
    No
    29.67%
    73

      Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence!

              Yes, I'm a Guard bum and I'm keeping it that way. Just reenlisted on the USS Missouri this summer during a 2 week "vacation" in Hawaii.

                        I did not. Only one in family to go to college instead and usually regret the experience lost. And as a recruiter I seek out those who have. The push for education, mostly by those who don't do the job, has created many who lack the gut intuition and who believe they should be in charge regardless of experience.
