I am just sitting here with my mouth wide open. My grandson told his Dad he had spent the day practicing first aid on live pigs. I told his dad that he was his leg pulled. This morning I checked it out on the "net." It looks like it is true. Does anyone know anything about this?
Being a country boy and used to hog killings, I don't think the things we did were related to first aid.

Got all wrapped up in PIGS - - didn't say what I've been doing.
Took my early/ancient electronics training from the Corps and parlayed it into an outstanding career with HAL. Twas an easy transition from vacuum tubes and sign waves to transistors and square waves. Spent all but three of my years in management. Total time was 28 years 10 months. Moved all over the USA chasing that dream. Wow, what a ride. Good news is I didn't have the same job for those years. Changed functions approx each 2 years. Last assignment was managing Management Development. Even did some consulting on the side. It finally happened - - burn out. I retired at 51.5 years of age and have never looked back. Each month when my check hits the bank, we are even.
After I moved to NW TN, I told my accountant to declare me out of business. I had been running thru airports and living out of a suitcase for too many years. I still enjoy the occasional class work helping out at the local college, but still find it difficult dealing with folks that really don't want to be there.

Went in as a welder (MOS 1316), surprised myself by using my G.I. Bill to get my Bachelor's of Science in Physics back in 1996, then used 2 Computer Elective courses from college to land my first programming job. Today, I am a Senior Software Developer. Who would have thought?

"Animal labs" are not uncommon in the military. When I was a paramedic (mid-1980s), I was invited to participate in a "goat lab" sponsored by the AF pararescue unit at my old Air Guard base. They were specifically going to train in tracheotomies and cricothyrotomies. Evidently goat tracheas are anatomically very similar to human tracheas.
The goats would be anesthetized by a veterinarian first, and humanely put to sleep afterward.
Unfortunately, I could not adjust my police work schedule to attend the lab. I was bummed.
