Where firefighters come to talk training

"Never forget and always be grateful"

Today we take a moment to thank each and every veteran and their families for the sacrifice they have made to provide for our freedoms. We remember all of those brave soldiers who did not make it home and made the ultimate sacrifice, giving their life, for those of us resting under that blanket of liberty. 

We draw many parallels with our Military brethren and much of the behaviors and attitudes we discuss are born from the courage and dedication United States soldiers have mastered. So, today when many will treat Veterans day as a day that symbolizes backyard barbecues, pool openings, and the unofficial start of summer rather we ask that you join us and never forget our brave veterans and always be grateful for their sacrifice. 

Take a moment and reflect on not just these numbers but also that each one represent a father, mother, son, daughter, brother or sister that died protecting our ability to live our lives freely and share our views without repression. Thank you to all of our Veterans.
