    A 10 month academy? Gad, I hope it's a part time academy. Let's see, you'll finish by November. So you'll be working Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years.

    Wow. That is pretty long. Mine was 19 weeks but full time 8 hour days 5 days a week. Thats not including Specifics and FTO though which is another 3 months but at least that was after we were sworn in so we werent treated like maggots after the badge was on.

    I believe ours was 21 weeks. 640 hours or so? Don't remember. The same academy runs longer now, 22 or 23 weeks.

    Congrats Bushido.

    The more we sweat in the academy, the less we bleed on the street.

    Yes sir! Day one was all admin stuff, and orientation. Day two was when the fun began. Nice little run to a giant hill then up and down the hill a couple times, and in your basic calisthenics, knee deep snow, stir well and serve very frosty recruits lol... It was fun.

    I think we have a pretty good squad, with an alright mix of little runner guys and big plodders (I'm the second one), the only problem is I feel like an old man since I am the oldest by about 8 years on most of them.:faint:
    Thanks for the well wishes from everyone.
