When I got out of Probie school 2 and a half years ago and started my probation "breaking In" period, there was really no interest by any of the senior men to sit myself and the other three guys down and tell us about the history of our job, the Local, the line of duty deaths we have had, what is and isn't expected of us during that period. "Shut up and Do the House Chores"!They were more or less discouraging us from taking pride in our new career, lifestyle, calling etc.. I took it upon myself to learn as much as I could (sometimes puling teeth) to get the answers. Funny thing is...Now I know more than some of the salts about our own specific history. I would like to get something going with future hires and give them the opportunity to be as proud as I am. Trouble is, I am still a junior man in the department. There's not much validity in "The Junior Guy"!
