                      I haven't posted much lately because I felt the FFing in Iraq thread had gone downhill for some time. Instead of what the forum started out as, it become a place where guys were airing their gripes against the company and individuals working for the company. It's a shame that guys feel this is the only way to address concerns they have. To air everything in a pulic forum for everyone in the world to read, including many of the soldiers we are over here helping. For the sake of everyone let's try and be productive in this thread instead of counter-productive. Remember the integrity that we as firefighters are suppossed to possess.

                      For those wondering what the re-up percentage is, it's hard to say at this point. So far only one group has completed their contract. The second and third groups are going to be finishing up in the next two weeks. I know of several guys that are re-uping for another year. I'll be back after my month and a half of R&R, vacation, and LWOP.

                      As I have said to many guys over here and through email, the time you spend over here will only be what you make it. If you want to be miserable the entire time you're over here, you will be. If you try to make the best out of things while you are here, you will. I have enjoyed my time here and have learned a lot from brother firefighters from all over the US. It is interesting bringing together firefighters from different parts of the US and putting them together on one department. Everyone has different ways of doing things, from hose packs to radio communications. The interesting part is when you integrate it all together and form a new department 8,000 miles form home to serve those who are protecting our freedom at home.

                      If I can answer any questions for anyone I am still more then happy to help. Everyone stay safe and continue working hard towards the goal.

                          BMWfire the company line is that if you don't hear from them in 2 weeks after mailing in your application then give them a call. I didn't want to wait that long and called them earlier and they set up my interview then. Good luck.

                              Thanks brothers and sisters

                              Rescue522,

                              I agree, this is NOT the place for dirty laundry...the original posts WWWAAAAYYYY back when, alot were from you, were informational!!! Guys w/ ?s and such. Lets use this to help them make their decision and get them through the process w/ as little pain as possible. I am by NO MEANS AGAINST equal input and opinions, but if you have something negative to post, keep it clean, keep if truthful, and don't make it personal. As Rescue522 says, your time there is what you make of it.

                              BMW,

                              I suggest tracking your app. online through USPS delivery confirmation...the day after you know they got it, give them a call to set up your interview...they will have time to review it from the time you call until your interview date, if there is anything else that they need, they will let you know.

                              To all others,

                              Post away....lets overtake the "Rescue Me" thread...again. Which by the way starts on June 22nd I heard. Sweet!!! I love that dark humor crap
