Well it seems a lot has been happening in OUR country lately with American Flag displays in some apartment complex in Albany Oregon or a decal in a Pa FD not being allowed! In all my years in the Fire Service not much has been held more sacred than Patriotism and displaying the American flag and all that it stands for! We have all given our own personal sacrifices in one way or another and an insurmountable number have given their lives for OUR FLAG and COUNTRY to allow her to forever wave! What is next??? I really don't want to go there but I hope you take the time to write your congressman and tell them we have had enough! In the mean time please read The Secret List
from the 18th of October. TSL column brings in new light and how the working conditions are leaning towards hostile. Please read what our beloved Chief Billy G has written. A few days ago I learned about the controversy over a flag decal on a department locker in PA see the series of articles at STATter 911
. I was also saddened to learn of another Brother's passing in the Line Of Duty and learned of two firefighters burned in KC. Please take a few moments to reflect and remember our fallen Brothers and Sisters, RFB, Never Forget!
As my dear brother Ben Fleagle proufoundly spoke this phrase at our recent function, I too would like to echo them this and everyday: "BRÁITHEREACHAS THAR GACH NÍ" “Brotherhood Above All Else”
