    I'm not quite there yet. I've always wanted to do something environment wise. Environmental Engineering is my chosen major. Year and a half left. One of my friends from elementary school said he always wanted to be in the air force since he was 7 or 8. He's currently attending the USAFA in Colorado Springs. Only person I know to stay that true to his goal.

    Sadly, not I. Since watching my first western movie, I always wanted to become a cowboy. But I was grew up in the big city, and it was not to be.
    I later moved to Texas and for a short time, I was a gentleman rancher and raised a few cattle. I wore a western hat and boots, and sometimes carried a gun, so I guess that made me a part-time cowboy.
    Once, while so attired, I was waiting in the emergency room of a local hospital, and I overheard a nurse refer to me as "that cowboy over there." That made it official.
    But I never owned a horse. Sob!

    Outstanding to all those above. I, myself, was pretty clueless except I knew I loved hunting and football. I took a job with the Water Dept. and since it paid fairly well with more overtime than you could imagine, (that hasn't changed, most of our water mains are over 100+ years old) I stayed with it. I have no complaints, my wife and children still love me and I get to take to the woods from time to time with my kids. I wish I didn't live in the city (I have to), but fresh air and countryside is but 45 minutes away, and I work right where Lake Erie and the Niagara river join, so I get to see lots of waterfowl with a great view.

    I wanted to be a firefighter as a youngster. While I don't do it full time, I am a volunteer. I could go to a bigger city and work it full time but I prefer to live in the country and help my freind's and neighbors as a volunteer. Its more personal, and very satisfying.

    Good for you Sarge. I had no idea what I wanted as an occupation. However was determined to hunt and adventure around the world,that was my goal. Though from a poor family was good at school and had intellectual curiosity to burn which helped me to advanced college degrees. Cleaned a lot of toilets and dishes to get there. During my freshman year in college a famous campus intellectual informed me I was to sensitive and nice of a guy to make it in this dog eat dog world. I vowed to prove him wrong and to do it honestly, fairly, and while being nice to people. If you have followed, and believe my ramblings on these pages over the past few years they indicate I have been pretty lucky in the hunting and adventuring departments. Best Regards To All

    From the time i was in high school i wanted to be on the N.Y.State Police and eventually work into the BCI on the scientific end of investigation.
    I went to the station with three buddies and when it came to my interview i said i was a sophomore in college, he said go back and get your degree, then come see us. I never went back. All my three of my buddies went on in various LEO positions. One in State Police was killed on duty, other two retired with considerable rank.

    As a take-off on Pray-Hunt-Work's question, how many people from time they were 10 or 12 years old said what their profession was going to be and then were lucky enough to carry it through. I would like to know the percentage of people who were able to follow their dream that they had at that young age. I was one of those lucky and fortunate people.
