Last saw you 15 years ago; you trained my company in the Tri-C fire academy. Now working as the E-3 Lt. for your former "brother-in-arms" M. D'Amico. Learned alot then (still do) , and share it with the men every shift.Watch out for Matt D..he said he was going to look you up at 11's for some more ride time!
