He's the guy next door
He's a man's man with the sharp memory of a little boy who never got over the excitement of fire engines and sirens and smoke and danger.
He's a guy like you and me with wants and worries and unfulfilled dreams.
Yet he stands taller than most of us....
HE IS A FIREMAN
He puts it all on the line when his pager beeps.
A fireman is at once the most fortunate and the least fortunate of men
He's a man who appericates the simple pleasures of life. . . hot coffee held in numbed, unbending fingers . . . the flush of fresh air pumping through smoke and fire convulsed lungs . . . a warm bed for bone and muscle compelled beyound feeling . . . the comraderie of brave men . . . the divine peace of selfless service and a job well done in the name of all men.
He doesn't wear buttons or wave flags or shout obscenities and when he marches, it is to honor a fallen comrade.
He doesn't preach the brotherhood of firemen.
HE LIVES IT EACH DAY !
