Entered the Charleston Fire Dept. in 1978. Moved through the ranks the hard way. Promoted to Captain in 1986 and remained at that rank until an injury put me out in 2003. I have served on IAFF Local 61 executive board since 1996 and have been president for 7 years until my recent retirement from that position on Sept. 1, 2008.
Nice to see you have a page here. It was great seeing you in Chicago and meeting your executive board and your lovely wife in Charleston at the Seminar last April.
I hope the changes being made are having a positive effect on the department and the men. I've kept in email contact with Ricky Koger and Matt Thompson and it seems that things are moving forward. I hope that you are doing well.
Take care and I will see you around the site. The invitation to come to Cleveland and fish still stands.
