    I've got a LEO in the family now

    Shortly after graduating from high school, my younger son decided that he wanted to try and become a Georgia State Patrol Trooper. However, you have to be at least 21 when you graduate from Trooper School.

    So, at age 19, after a pretty extensive background check and application process, he started work with the Ga. Dept. of Public Safety, as a Safety Officer at the state capital. After about eight months, and with the encouragement of a couple of command officers, he transferred to the GSP headquarters as a Cadet.

    He stayed there until he left for the 102nd Trooper School on October 1st, 2017. Yesterday, after 32 weeks (1,053 hours of classroom and group instruction, and an additional 480 hours of "on the road" field training), he graduated and is currently the youngest Trooper on the force at 21 years, 3 months, and 18 days.

    Congratulation that is quite an achievement
    We thought about it for a long time, "Endeavor to persevere." And when we had thought about it long enough, we declared war on the Union

    Well done! Now don't embarrass him by getting a speeding ticket from the GSP!
