    I’m happy for you. Envious. I’d consider it if I had anything else I could do.

    But I know I’d miss it. As much as I ***** about it. I’d miss it

    You chose to be a sheepdog, and will never be a sheep, active LE status or not. Everyone here will always be happy to have you in "the club." After all, whether you are still wearing the uniform or you hung it up for good, it's your character and what you inherently stand for that will always make you special.

    Congrats.

    As long as your vested in the pension system you should be able to draw a check when you hit retirement age. That’s my plan. That extra $400-500 a month (for me after 7 years in) will help with whatever.

    I posted that on my FB as covid hit. With my wife's schedule and my old work schedule we would have had to do some drastic **** to homeschool the kids.

    You’ll always be one of us.

    Hard to imagine leaving with 16 months left though.

    I can draw my pension at 49. I can’t imagine what could cause me not to stick it out for that, and I’ve got 12 years left.

    Very many congratulations. I remember that day for me 29 years ago last month when I moved to USA with my US born wife. Enjoy!

    some say it's intuition, some say it's the Holy Spirit, but I've got to believe there is a valid reason a higher power decided to nudge you to make a change. You will never know what would have happened should you have stayed. Just be thankful you listened to your gut. I'm guessing that you are very blessed.

    Enjoy what lies ahead.

    There comes a time when enough is enough.

    You are a man of integrity/principles and only you know what is best for you.

    Good for you.

    A brother for life if you consider a hose dragger/band aid pusher a brother.

    God speed

    I love foundation savers, lol. My partner for the last few years of my career was a volly hosedragger. I let him drive, cause if he can roll those big ass engines safely, the Taurus wasn't crap.
