    Good luck to all of you.

    After a few years of trying I finally have been hired on with the United states marshals. Heading out in a couple days to start my training at their facility. Thanks to everyone for all the great info and opinions. Keep up the awesome work you are all doing and hopefully I will be back in a few months. Until then, good luck to all and happy holidays.

    Congrats and best of luck to you, sigrscu.

    They're getting a good man. You impressed with your analysis of that incident in the West Valley Wal-Mart.

    Thanks HankT. I'm excited for the opportunity and also a little nervous. I just hope that I can still puke and run at the same time haha, a skill I had to perect in basic years ago.

    Some reason, I never puked while running in basic.

    However, having to "go" was another thing entirely.

    Good luck.

    I always just "went" unless it was the other " go" I just figured everyone else would assume it was sweat or by the time anyone cared to look.., it was dry haha. But puking, kinda hard to cover that up. Just sorta run with your head down and to the side. Sucks fir the guys behind ya, but hey.

    Yeah, unfortunately it usually was the other "go".

    No recourse there but to suck it up and drive on.
