P.S. One of the reasons I decided not to become a Boarding Officer is because I do not believe in many of the laws I am required to enforce. I joined because I wanted to save lives and get an education in life.

The only good thing was there were some nice bars on nearby St. Simon Island. At that time you could walk in any of them with a cigar in your yap and not get any grief!

it can't be any worse than taking army basic training at fort sill oklahoma in august. who knew oklahoma was an extremely humid place in hot weather? i didn't. plus our barracks was leftover temporary housing from WWII and was basically nothing more than a shack on stilts. (no a/c of course or anything else) half the windows were missing screens, so we were all bit up by mosquitos all the time too. i wonder if those buildings are still there? that was 21 years ago. it wouldn't surprise me....
ya know, this kid doesn't drink either! now might be a good time for him to start! our jetski group would stay weekends at his parent's beachhouse and we'd all be partying and having a great time with his family, but if he wasn't riding or talking about pwc's (personal watercraft) he didn't have much input so he'd amuse himself by making fun of the drunks.
hmm, doesn't drink, doesn't smoke, no sense of humour except maybe a cruel one....now that i put all that together, i'm starting to think he's going to turn into one of those prick-bastard kinds of customs officer. he's a big dude too. eh, don't feel sorry for him! haha

The National Park Service(my agency) does all their law enforcement training at Glynco, it's now 19 weeks long!

we like it...
we love it...
we want more of it...
parks service? that sounds pretty interesting. your agency is at odds with my group....the American Watercraft Association, formerly the IJSBA.
did you or do you patrol any parks?

I don't know about Custom's requirements for physical training but the Park Service won't even send their rangers down to Glynco until they go through a full physical exam and a battery of physical fitness tests that include agility, strength, running and percentage of body fat. Then you are requires to take the same test twice a year until you retire.
Was a law enforcement ranger for 22 years and was stationed at 5 different parks during that time. Now I'm an office manager. Some days I really miss the field work.

yeah, that sounds like an awesome job <the field work>. working outdoors in a national park, how can you beat that? is there a downside to it? what was the strangest thing you've ever seen on the job?
i'm hoping my friend passes the physical qualifications. i'm sure there must be some. i'm beginning to wonder. he's a strong guy, but i don't know about his endurance with that weight of his.
