I got layed off and my last day is May 14th. it looks like I will be going back to the automotive shop I was at before here. I am taking a big pay cut, but at least it is a job. Anyways, this change of events has inspired me to apply for the Houston Police Department.....again. My original plan was if I got out of the Army I was going to be a Police officer. I got out and applied for HPD in 2001. During my application process i got deployed with the National Guard. When i got back i found out that HPD had been sued and all my application was void. his was a years worth of work and waiting gone. I got side tracked and well, here I am. So, I am going to give it another try!
