    Then about two years as a part-time crime scene tech, and this coming July 1st will be number twenty-four full-time.

    Therefore 40 all together.

    Dayum, I'm not getting old, I AM old!

    Overall, it's been a great ride.

    6th year, my first two were in a war zone aka the project area.

    Wise men stand behind me, brave men stand beside me, but only fools stand against me.

    The force that propels you to prevail when you are put to a test of survival will be a mindset that refuses to accept nothing but winning.

    Too often, we lose sight of life's simple pleasures. Remember, when someone annoys you it takes 42 muscles in your face to frown, BUT, it only takes 4 muscles to reach out and bitch slap that motherf*cker upside the head.

    Forty three years six months.
    Thirty years Mississippi Highway Patrol

    The remainder climbing the ladder.
    Did my time as Captain/Troop Commander
    Major/Southern Region
    Last six years as Lt. Col. Chief of Uniformed Division.

    Was offered the position of Chief of Police in the old home town, population just under 14K. Retired from MHP,took five days off, started there and have held that position for fourteen years as of 01-Feb-08.

    I still love it and would start over again as a trooper in a heartbeat.

    I think I remember seeing something about him, but I don't know him personally. I'm about 150 miles from NO.

    Mav might know more about him. He's in the N'Awlins area.

    It's been said before, and it bears repeating.

    Some people get 20 years of experience. Others get one year, 20 times. (Substitute the number you'd like; it's still true. Rooks on probation can count in months.)

    Your job is to make sure you get 20 years of experience over your 20 years.

    4 years ASA (Army Intel) with the NSA
    1 years Burns Security/special projects
    30 years King County Sheriff
    1 year Justice Department
    4 months TSA
    5 years Chief of Security

    for a grand total of 41 years 4 months. If I had it to do over, I would have skipped the Lt. test and I would still be the best Homicide Sgt. on the west coast.
