Dear Chief,

My name is Bradley Hough and I am a fire explorer in Cherokee County. You spoke to my explorer group last fall. I read your Book and it gave me some tremendous learning experience that I have brought to my Explorer post. That book has driven my passion, love, and pride for the fire service! Thank you for writing it!

Hey Chief!! Have you missed me? LOL Hope all is well with you and yours. Haven't gotten to touch bases with you in awhile. Is there any way you would be willing to share your SOG on high rise fires with me? Chief Watts has delegated that to me and I would like to see several good ones and get an idea on what ours needs. Send it to if you don't mind. Don't forget your sister from North Carolina!! One of these days Doug and I are coming to Lewisville to see you!! Until then, stay safe brother!!

Love you bunches,
Marnie Price

Hi Chief I would like to start by saying thank you for the inspiration you have brought to my carer and the fire service as a whole. Im writing in hope that you may be able to give me some guidance, I was asked to give a speech for Memorial day. To say the least I have horrible writers block and cant even think of a way to write this in a way that pays remembrance to our depts fallen brothers but at the same time not disregard our veterans. Any words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

Hey Chief:

I wanted to thank you for doing that little favor. He's lookin' up. I also wanted to thank you for the chapter you wrote in the new Fire Engineering FF 1 and 2 Handbook. That is an awesome text and your contribution in the beginning was great. Its about time someone stated, at the very beginning, what a firefighter should keep at the front of his or her career. Those values. Thanks for doing that.

What an honor to be able to meet Marcus Latrell. I just finished reading his book and I feel like I know him. I wish there where more people like him in the world.
