    The hard work hasn't even begun yet. Eyes and ears open, mouth shut. Learn, learn, learn and you will be successful! Good luck!

    Xiphos is right, it hasn't begun yet. Learn all you can from each instructor, the battle stories you hear in the academy may save your life. Experience is the best teacher and most every instructor is a veteran officer, they know what they are talking about from experience. Book learning is good, but your instructors have been there and done that, don't dismiss their stories as bulls**t. Best of luck and welcome to the site from Kentucky.

    My dad, I miss him every day.

    Way to hang in there for the longest, most frustrating career hiring process in the world. Oh, and welcome to the jungle.
    I'm not ruining your life, you are, and I'm just going to write a short story about it.
