Default How do like them apples?

My 20 yo son is dyslexic and struggles with timed test. He’s completed the fire academy but has to retake part of his state test. (Ran out of time). He went and took Louisiana’s Civil service test which is transferable anywhere in the state and he was given extra time to take it.
I’d say he kicked it in the nads.
Very proud Dad here.

Good deal!

My son is dyslexic as well and so are two nephews. One particular nephew has struggled with several agencies trying to get into LE. Even after hes got 2 degrees from Sam

I saw that. He called them. They’re not used to Texas folks driving all the way to New Orleans for a test. 😁
