When you posted you got the dreaded "thin letter" my stomach did a flip-flop and I actually remembered each time I opened my mailbox to find the "thin letter". Funny... The first thin letter you get is actually exciting... You don't know it's a bad thing until *AFTER* you open it. Then it's the big let-down. Of course the 2nd and 3rd thin letter is also a mixed bag of emotions, because your brain hasn't quite grasped the fact that good news does not come in such a small package. I would say after my 3rd thin letter I learned what to expect when I saw the same type in my mailbox.
So when the 4th and 5th letters came, I just sighed, ripped them open and threw them on the pile. It's nice to have a community here that can feel your pain and happiness. When I hear of a guy/gal getting the call for a PD, S/O, State Agency, or a FLETC, Quantico, or Postal Academy date I get almost as excited for them for a split second. Where others look at you as if you're mad when you keep your face pushed to the front window of your house and let out a pathetic squeak every time you see a FedEx truck pass by on your street, we are there for you...

cpwclarke, good to see you aren't giving up, and glad we could serve as a free support group for you ( ). Just keep telling yourself, "I'm good enough! I'm smart enough! And dog-gone-it, some FLE agency likes me!" Keep fighting the good fight."All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." -Edmund Burke

Impresive. Rejection is the foundation for success. You'll do fine. Just keep plugging away.
