Thanks for letting me in here. I'm not LEO. But I was an EMT-IV here on the local ambulance service for 8 years. I worked weekends and holidays so some of the younger kids could take time off and be with their families.
I'm medically retired from the Y-12 National Security Complex in Oak Ridge, TN. I have worked as an engineer, machinist, tool & die maker, welder & farmer.
My hobbies are almost anything that shoots or goes bang. I have shot PPC, IPSC, benchrest and getting into the 1,000 yard stuff.
I'm mostly here to observe. I'm house bound a lot, due to medical problems.

Welcome to the boards from an expatriate Tennessean in Kentucky.
As a matter of fact, I'm originally from Oak Ridge and my dad worked at Union Carbide. My great uncle Norman worked at Y-12. He got a ton of patents over the years. I think the plant my dad worked at was designated K-25? I my have that reversed. My great uncle may have been at K-25(?) and my dad at Y-12. They are both gone now, so I can't verify. Dad was more of a factory guy, and my great uncle was a scientist.
Anywho, welcome aboard.

Thanks for the great welcome. I appreciate it.
Aegis, I worked at both of them. But Y-12 mostly. It was Union Carbide when I hired in, then Martin Marrietta, Lockheed Martin, and now it's BWXT.
