I am currently in the final phases on Dyncorp's Police Mission (Police Advisor). I wanted to know if anyone here or anyone you know well, has any info or input about the missions, location and people. Mainly a general information source to broad my personal knowledge. Can you help?

I'm confused. Are you over there now, or are you in the final phases of selection?

I am going for P.A.S.T Academy in 1 week(Virginia). Two weeks later deployed to Afghanistan if everything goes as planned.

I know a couple of guys that worked training missions like yours. The information that was relayed back to me was vague, but from what I gathered they stayed in garrison and trained the indigenous personnel. They didn't ever see real 'combat'.

Good luck, be careful!

Take plenty of t-shirts and underwear. Some antibiotic ointment, duct tape, wet wipes, tylenol or advil and a few rolls of toilet paper. And when they told you to take about $800 to $1000, it is because you will have to buy alot of this stuff I just mentioned. DVD's if you have a laptop that is the best you can do. No protable DVD player. Laptops are recommended for email and if you can find one with video. AND a good pocket knife. You will get bored most of the time. Alot of down time and DO NOT DO NOT fire your weapon at anything at all except for when you are at the range. AND dont get sick, If you do and get shipped out of the country, you wont get paid......... GOOD luck. take a few books. and a game boy or Playstation PSP.
