sounds like a great plan. well im looking into ME because i have a degree in Criminology and Criminal Justice, Law enforcement has been part of my life for some years now and figure i could try and pursue it with the CG. possibly Hawaii because my family is out there, maybe CA or Florida. ideally wherever there is more use of ME's id like to be.

Hey CLammers, oh that is so cool I go down there all the time to visit family. No they are having me go to Sacramento. 

jgraff522, when you go swimming raise your arms out of the water and over your head and tread water just with your legs as long as you can.

Hey Taj, I am not nervous at all yet, but I am shure I will be once I get on the plane, I have been wanting to do this for a long time. I am good at running and swimming so I have been practicing push ups and sit ups. Cant wait to meet all of you at Cape May soon.

Huh, well I may be the only person that is going to be a reservist ha ha, but that is because I am coming back to go to college and apply to the CSPI program. 

Sorry jgraff522, I know I am not supposed to ask a woman this but how old are you? I am sure they will train us well in swimming.

Yeah Clint I know it is one of those things that you can't believe it is happening until you get there ha ha.

Oh that is not that bad, just sucks that you are going to have your b-day in boot ha ha. Hey I've got a tip for doing pushups. Take a hiking backpack and fill it with some big heavy books, then do pushups with that on your back. Have enough weight in the backpack that only allows you to do like ten full pushups.
