Another milestone

Actually several of them.

I now have less than 200 days to go.

I am attending my last week of Annual Refresher Training.

I have fired the stun gun (a 37mm shotgun that fires bean bags) for the last time.

And most important of all, I have filed my application for retirement benefits.

Congratulations! You would think that there'd be more recreational stun-gun users on the target ranges.

So what materials does a corrections officer/Marine use for a short-timer's chain?
