I talked to the VT State Police recruiting Lt. and Sgt. today and both told me I will be getting hired for summer academy class which begins July 11. Its not 100% official yet, but both said that I am high on the list and they are just waiting for the OK from the Colonel to hire which will be by next week at the latest. Almost there... almost hard to beleive. Best news of my life! I'll post here once I get the official letter.
