Congratulations !!
I can only image the fight you been in this whole sitution.
I have been in legal fights in both of my promotions.Both were on the local level,nothing to the extent you have gone through.
I know it stinks
Hopefully the cream will rise to the top.
I hope you and your Brothers get the promotion you worked DAM hard for !!
I wish I could come to the promotion party and buy you a beer.
My best,
Joe Meyer

Thank you so much for all of your hard work and dedication throughout this entire ordeal. You have many fans across the US for standing up and doing what you and the others did. Again thank you, and congrads. I hope you will have a picture up sometime soon, of a shiny Bar on your badge and collar!

Thank God for people like Frank. He is an American hero. I am not a firefighter, but am a physician in KC, MO. I have been following this case since the beginning. Thank you to Frank and all who have helped and supported him. You guys are amazing; you are what America is about. God bless all of you!

A very important win, thank you. We all, regardless of race, owe a debt of gratitude. Discrimination is discrimination. Congrats.

Hey Frank,
It was great getting to meet you personally at FDIC. Your class was great! Lot's of good training material to take back here to the STLFD. I hope you guys win your case, it will impact us as well. I'll try to get those Pevely warehouse fire pics to you soon.
Let me know if I can help you with anything else.

Stay safe brother!

Frank, I took your class out at FDIC and enjoyed it very much and wanted to thank you for teaching it. I also lived at Station 12 with Dave, and we work out at NIST together, in addition to being from CT originally as well, New Milford to be exact. Again thanks, and I look forward to taking something next year with you.

Hello Frank,

How you been? Well I hope. That's a great photo of all of us. If you wouldn't mind let me know the title of the video that segment was in, I have yet to see it and I would definitely get a kick out of it.

Stay Safe!

I did not take those pictures I was the Acting Officer on the 2nd due Engine and had entered the building at the time the pictures were taken. Our line was the red line. Our trucks have been using the color coded lines and on the new trucks they match the colors on the pump panel. I have other pictures that I have taken that may help. One of our BC’s took the pictures. He is a great guy. I will ask him if it is cool to use. I doubt that there will be an issue with it. I can send you the file if you want. Message me with your e-mail. Stay Safe Don Huneke (EGH)
