    Talking Hello Mark

    Thank you for the reply to my thread.
    You mentioned you were in the army. Did you enjoy that? My sister is a third generation enlisted US soldier. She got back from Irac 2-3 months ago, she was there for 18 months. I've thought about myself, but I havn't made up my mind. I'ld rather bandege gun wounds then cause them. If I was to go into the army I would still go in as a Medic/Firefighter. I have heard they have a very hard program for Firefighters. I like that, It's a challenge. I also extend greatings from Illinois.

    Glad to know you love what you do!

    jorie, good to hear from you, yes I spent 8 years in the army, not regular army though, all rerserves you know weekend warrior, but nevertheless still army. I enjoyed every minute of it including bootcamp! I respect the drill instructors more now than ever.

    My job while in was plumbing, I have to say though I didn't do much of that. I spent most of my time as a truck driver hauling equipment and materials and doing construction on various bases when given the chance. my unit was combat engineers, we rebuilt things but was ready if the need arised.

    From experience choose wisely when and if you decide to enter the service, the recruiters are not your friends!! The service does have a great fire service and if you can get into it go for it, try for airport fire service, good money from what I hear.

    Anyway in anything you do do it to the best of your ability and good luck!!
