Well guys/gals, I got a letter from the THP the other day wanting to know if I was still interested in becoming a State Trooper. This is by invitation only. I answered Yes and have to go this wk end to get the process started. I was on the list for Trooper before my deployment but things just did not work out for me.
I really feel good about this and am hoping for the best. I know it will take a lot to get the job, but Im going to give it 100% and I hope it works out for me.....

Good for you! Your prior service should serve you well during your academy phase. Parts of it ( I imagine) will bring back memories of basic training. You know the mindset to keep.
Of course if you really want to have some fun ask your instructors if they ever worked for a real police department.

Congrats...Hope all works out the way you and your family would like..
Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
I'm too young to be this old!
Getting old isn't good for you!
