i was ordered by a judge to join military or go to jail. it was definately a good thing for me. i now have s great job and work with troubled teens
going to prison, no it wasn't a good thing, the good thing was when I got off parole
yeah they stopped bugging you.
How long did you serve in prison, and on parole? Was it maximum, medium, or minimum security facility or facilities? State or federal?
13 years, and walked 5 off---5 different from max to minimum----state
I don't know.... but the slope had a steep downhill grade by the time I noticed.
so now you know you have to pay attention to yourself 24/7.
hmm, it won't help now
When i retired after twenty-seven years as a police officer, because the relief of supervisors misusing their rank and positions, and gratuitous egotism and competition and jealousy and meanness between department rank and file fellow employees, far and above adversely affected me than i benefitted from liking my job and working with nice, decent, caring people (who made up only twenty or twenty-five percent or so of all of those people i worked with day in and day out).
I can say both
For me it was when I turned 30...............and yes it was a GREAT thing.
its still a great thing for you.
