     I'm a 10 year military veteran with 5 years in the Navy as a Sonar Technician Submarines and 5 years in the Army as Field Artillery. I've moved 40ish times so far primarily along the east coast as well as in and around Chicago, IL; Lawton, OK; and Fairbanks, AK where I currently reside. I've been out of service for 3 years (almost to the day) and have been trying to figure out a path to take. I initially avoided Law Enforcement because I was concerned that if I immersed myself into the criminal aspect of this country that I would begin to second guess the validity of my service. Serving in the military didn't save democracy or protect the Constitution; the reality is that when your nation sends people to combat, someone has to go. Since I went, someone else didn't have to. I was worried that if I became a LEO, and spent a majority of my time around criminals that I would doubt who I was protecting by going to combat. Fortunately though, I have an amazing wife. Even if everyone else that I ever met the rest of my life was worthless, having met her, I have no reason to doubt such things. If I can meet someone like her, then there are others like her.


     As such, I should probably start listening to her. She's been telling me that I would probably be happy in Law Enforcement pretty much since I got out. So now I'm trying to direct myself towards that, but I don't really know where to start. Alaska is not the end of my trip; there's just no chance that I would spend the rest of my life here. The problem is that I don't really know where to go. I'm limiting myself to north of the Mason-Dixon Line because I am very much done with working in very hot climates. Other than that, I have a current interest in eventually becoming a homocide detective. While I'm certain that I don't actually know anything about their actual job, I know that I have never had an issue around corpses.


     So that's pretty much why I'm on here; other than changing my degree to Criminal Justice, I don't really know how to proceed from here. That's probably largely due to not knowing where to go. I will probably end up posting something similar in the Law Enforcement Career section as well. Sorry for being so long winded and "heavy" at the begining; I'm a fairly straightforward and open person though, so I just put out what comes to mind.


 


On a side note, it seems that on one either reads or follows the directions of the pinned posts; it says to make the post topic your name or your profile name but everyone seems to go with something else.

WELCOME AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE !  Yes, as a LEO you may become pretty jaded, but remember, without people like YOU the knuckleheads wouldn't have the opportunity to change their minds and be good citizens ! (the 1st LEO that rains on this guys parade gets the CLAWS ya'll understand ????) Decide where you want to move, then do your research. You won't make detective right away, gotta learn the streets first !


 


Soooo, welcome from Bayou Country !!! and yes it's HOT !!! lol

Welcome to Police Link, from Ohio! From a Retired Veteran: Thank You for Your Service.


Don't let politics get in your way of thinking. You did protect the US Constitution and our way of Life. Almost any citizen would tell you that.


Follow your heart, and if the LEO way of life is calling for you, go for it. Have a back-up plan. Law Enforcement is not for everyone. But, you won't know if you don't try. KUDOS to your Mrs for supporting you and "having your back"


Best wishes.
