No, I didn't get called (270). Who knows what happened between your number and mine though. I would imagine that they are done calling for July at this point.

Very brief and very informative......Thanks. Where do we buy the uniforms? Someone said it would cost about $900.00 for our first set of uniforms....Is that true or exagerated? Also, how long will we be at fbf? Thanks in advance.

I remember at orientation we were told we would need $500. $94.25 for the fingerprints and $400 for our uniforms. I plan on asking tomorrow about uniforms. From what I was told all the uniform places know what we need so we can basically go before july and buy our uniforms and not wait until fbf when 100 guys are buying.
