Hi Dave, The day is upon me here as the Academy starts on Monday 04/20. The course runs for 15 weeks with graduation on 07/31. I would send out invite to graduation except I know not many will be able to make it due to distance, schedule, etc..... However, if you're interested and can attend in person, send me a PM and I'll be more than happy to forward the info once I have it. Here's their website if you're interested to see what I'll be doing: https://ileatraining.org/ (262nd Basic class for me)
I'm very excited, nervous, anxious..... Name it and I'm experiencing it now. My wife is extremely happy for me but upset at the same time with me having to live on base for the entire duration (minus the weekends when we're allowed to go home). Several of my colleagues, who were recently hired, will be attending the same class as me so there will be familiar faces around. Sad part is I only live about 20 minutes from the Academy too unlike many students who had to travel from the surrounding Counties to get here. With this said, I'll be taking an extended break from PL to direct my undivided attention on endless hours of studies and training. It will be like going away for college which I never had to do except only for one full semester :) Will miss all my friends on here and all the discussions and comments which I will catch up on my return. Take care and stay safe my friend. Wish me luck!!! Andrew

LOVE & HUGS, BEV & PATCHES
