    I haven't heard from them but I called about 2 weeks ago, only because I knew I would be really busy with work/ on the road for a while, and it was all confirmed that it was good to go. It feels like I won the lotto. This means a lot to me, and I am so very much appreciative of this coming...

    Mathematics applying/within the Forces.

    If you don't use it, you lose it. It's been covered that no one whose taken can divulge information about. You sign your name to that, as a matter of fact. Try using math in your every day life. Precalculate tax before you purchase things, stop using calculators to shed the dependancy we all...

    Should Leaders Ever Swear?

    Let it fly, he was pissed and should be. Did he leave doubt to the affected that reckoning will be dealt? Nope. As long as he backs it up. I like it, we are drilled with canned political correctness so much we deflect most of it anyway.

    "Smitherman: Firefighters should swallow EMS"

    Pretty much the entire United States requires all Firefighters to be at least have their EMT-Basic, if not their EMT - Paramedic. Quite often the EMT - Paramedic must be completed after being hired on anyway. In fact EMT-Basic is a requisite ticket to have in order to start some Firefighter...

    Your powers of deduction are strong and observations astute...But, give them some credit that they can read October, as October, and that they do this for a living. Not saying humans can't make mistakes...But they can over think big time. Good luck.
