It cost us over 5 grand for my husband to become a cop and we are being reimbursed for none of those costs. This includes his gun, bullet proof vest, uniform, flashlight, taser, mace, etc.

Yes. Happy he has a job he loves and is gainfully employed.

Yes. Happy he is an officer somewhere where he makes enough that we are able to recover financially.

I had too much wine last night and went into a diatribe about how first responders should have a special category of tax deductible employment costs that don't have to meet a certain amount. I looked like a whiny cop wife.
