Hey SMD, why didnt you just go active duty if you wanted to be a policeman that bad, and MAcop, why didnt you just enlist? I do agree with you however, that what constitutes an actual "veteran" needs to be reformed. I would suggest 2 years minimum of consecutive active service instead of the 180 days (with an exception for those injured of cousre). I for one served 4 plus years on active duty inluding an overseas deployment and I dont like seeing people that just do the 180 days getting the same benefits that I do.

SMD, dont be jealous, you had your oppurtunity and you blew it. Like Proud American said, you cant choose race or gender, but you can choose to become a vet. If you want to get on a department that much, either go active, get your paramedic lisence, or start learning a second language. Thats how the game is played here in Massachusetts, if you dont like it write your local congressman.

SMD- A paramedic's training is much higher than an emt's, but the course is a lot longer and much more expensive, EMT's do receive a preference with civil circus as well if you want to get your foot in the door. As for your second language being Hebrew, I am sure any department would like to have a bilinguial qualified candidate reguardless of what the language is. However, Departments usually only hire those with a foreign language based on the needs of the non-English speaking foreigners in the community.
