Inauguration day fire truck

Just off Canadian News out of Calgary Alberta Canada: a local costume designer stitched together 30 uniforms depecting World War 1 American Servicemen. They will be marching with the red fire truck which in past years has had firefighters marching with it on other inauguration day celebrations. So....does that mean that the military now recognizes the history of firefighterveterans as "Rubber Boot Warriors" who have served these many years on the "homeland front?'

Perhaps this is the beginning of a shift towards the understanding that those in government need to have made clear to them....we too serve our nation and in that capacity especially since 911 when the "homeland was attacked".......something to consider when the big day of the presidential change comes to us.....watch for the fire truck in the parade...the Canadian gal who did the work on the uniforms will be riding in the truck with her family.....

in the meantime......developing from the National Fallen Fire Fighters Foundation is the California meeting this month number 2 . The first one on stress in the fire services was held in Boston in order to address section 13 of the firefighter life safety initiatives.....I hope to track the information flow and post it here when they publish the results. The "best practises" model is being worked on for issues around the "mental health and wellness" portion.....

stay safe....and lets all enjoy a good parade....we have been
waiting a long time for change....this looks like it will be a good one...
time will tell...
