Hey Chief! Happy Belated Thanksgiving. I'm sure you were enjoying your warm weather and it has been warm here....well at least it's above zero. Can't remember where I can find your departments protocols for establishing an Honor Guard. If you could post them on here or email them it would be greatly appreciated.

I liked what Marnie had to say, she is so right! Thanks for all your hard work and dedication to opening hearts and minds on our tradition of the job with you book and podcasts.....this stuff is like a good drug, it's addicting to the point that everyone in or brotherhood should be an addict.

Say no to Mutts...say yes to Brotherhood Tradition

I hope to see you in a few months brother, when it's warm here!

Happy Thanksgiving, Chief, to you and yours!! A person who has no knowledge of their past is like a tree with no roots. Thank you for growing our fire service roots, brother! After all, being a firefighter is not just what we do, it is who we are!! KTF

Chief, Hope you had a good trip home. Me & my wife enjoyed meeting you and your class today 11-15-08. It refired my spark for the job even more than what I had. Thanks again!
Take care buddy!

Hey Chief.
sorry it took so long but I just wanted to know if you got the FOOLS shirts or not from Alaska. Sent them to your home. I was wondering if I could get a LFD Pipes and Drums shirt from ya.

Great FOOLs of Fire

Chief, I'm not alone in saying that we are looking forward to having you up in Olympia Wa next month. Any chance the local FOOLS chapter could trade you a dinner and beverages for some stories and inspiration. I'm sure you'll be a busy man when your in town but it would be our pleasure Chief.

Chief Lasky,
I saw you speak up in Minnesota last fall. I came up to meet you and shook your hand. It was like shaking a bunch of bananas!! You are a great writer and I love reading your book. Thanks for all you do, Sir.

Hey Chief, I have been looking for your cd to buy for our department. (we could use alot of pride and ownership) But i can not find anybody that has it in stock. if you have any ideas where i can buy it could you let me know. That video changed me more then any one thing in the fire industry. Thank you, and ill do my part spreading the word.
