It was true Honor and privilege working with you at the funerals for or fallen brothers in Kilgore. Your commitment to honoring these brothers shows your dedication to never forgetting a fallen firefighter. If you ever need anything in the future give me a call and we will be there. Hope to see you at the Symposium Lewisville is hosting, if not me then some of our Honor Guard members will be there.
Brother, 55 to me is t-shirt, shorts and sun tan weather while drinking cold beer and out fishing. We had 55 below the other day and a few brothers were out working a job on the West side. Actually being a frozenhosehead instead of literally is no fun. So can my buddies...that would be you and Chief Lasky give a Texas heeve ho to some warm weather to your big brother Alaska? We sure could use it. Maybe you could see if Rick could fit you in his luggage when he comes up here this year in July when it's actually 80's and 90's and we can do some fishing. Oh and I'm getting into learning how to play the bagpipes too so if you guys have any practice chanter sheet music or online that you could show me I'd appreciate it.
Yea, I missed being able to get over there. Trying to figure out where we are at with the new responsibilities and all. I saw a short you tube video performance in front of the hall that was pretty cool.
Hope it went well and I look forward to seeing you guys soon...
Thanks for the kind words. If I could guess on your friends from Clearwater it would be Doug Swartz and Pete Georgantas? I was the Special Ops Chief responsible for the Honor Guard and a member of the Honor Guard. I've got a question for you? Chief Lasky mentioned a dedication program for new apparatus. Any chance I could get a copy? We are putting some in service and wanted to start this tradition. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I am a member of the Terre Haute Fire Dept honor guard. we currently have 5 members, and wear the Departments Class A's with the only thing different is red shoulder cords, and an honor guard badge are added. we are currently trying to build with our new administration, we had almost 0 support from the last administration. We are looking to a lot of other departments right now, trying to come up with some procedures, and rule for what type of funerals get what services. its great to hear a little about other departments.
