In 1982 I started a career in law enforcement.  I went to work for the Lufkin Police Department.  Later, when I joined the Military, I also worked for the Leesville Police Department.  In September of 2019 I decided to go back through the police academy to reinstate my license in Texas.  6 Months later, I graduated the East Texas Police Academy for the second time, just 35 years later. Here is a short video of a speech I gave at that graduation:

Since getting my license back, I was commissioned by the Kendall County Fire Marshal's Office.  Going back to school again, I received my TCOLE Instructor's Certification and my TCOLE Firearms Instructor Certificate.
