Apropos Veterans Day

In the past month – a normal month for DTs, by the way – I have met:

a Cold War submarine commander;

an original  Tuskegee airman;

a soldier/POW from the Battle of the Bulge;

a tanker from Patton’s Third Army;

at least three infantrymen who saw France – beginning D-Day;  a couple more who toured Europe via the scenic Italian route;

an Air Force officer who served in Vietnam;

a young man on leave who is still serving our country…

Folks are right, there are heroes to be found when one is in the Fire/EMS gig, and it’s our privilege to serve them.
