    I have done nothing but SUE for 13 years and I have no interest in ever changing careers.

    Well, being an uneducated Canadian in everything military, I would not know what a SMAW is.

    However, I get the sense me and my little Toyota RAV4 would very quickly be in deep poop!

    It's an 83mm projectile that will penetrate up to 7 feet of sandbags and turn it into a sandbox. It also has Anti-armor projectiles as well. About $2300/round, so we didn't get a ton of live fire, but when we did.....What fun!

    [I] do, [I] do.

    [I] drive a company issue Ranger thats in the shop at least once a month. All small little things like oxygen sensors, tuneup, catalytic converter, new battery, the list goes on and on.

    The company has finally given me another Ranger and have had no problems in about 6 weeks!

    They are keeping my former truck in reserve, or on the reserve or something!

    Just wanted to say Thank You to everyone for all your replies; pending my drop test and background check, I got the JOB!!! Not worried one bit about that so I guess I have it.

    Went on a ride along and really can't wait to get started! I am looking forward to being apart of this great group of people. When it comes down to it, everyone should really be happy and appreciative that they have a job in this day and age and I AM!!!

    Hope to one day be able to contribute to this great site.

    Thanks again and I hope you all have a Safe and Merry Christmas!!!

    Semper Fi,

    Bob
