I actually stumbled into it! I joined the ElPaso County ESD#2 and was hooked ever since!! I've Lived in Devine TX and was in EMS there and worked offshore as a medic in the Texas gulf and Louisiana coast! But i came back to El Paso after my divorce to become a federal firefighter!
Seen that you said your going to Camp Lejeune. I spent 5 years down there. I was active duty Marine Corps. There are a bunch of cool places to go. Wilimngton is cool for the college girl scene or Greenville. Stay away from the Driftwood its a money pit. The Tarheel is a pretty cool country bar if your into that.
What station are you at? I worked down the road from the Gonzales station. Be safe out there and remember colors is at 0800
