Get this off my chest....

The last week has brought something to the fore that has been bothering me for awhile now....our National Anthem and how it's being presented.

PLEASE....if you can't find anyone who can sing it.... just play it, we can all sing along.

I love Cyndi but this is not right....

Just this last week at the start of the race in Richmond, Va, they had a military band that simply played the National Anthem. I remember thinking, ” this is so much better”
Concur with you Bob. I don't need a big name singing. A local high school band means more to me.

This is a copy of a post I made on my Thread... "The Old Girl needs New shoes."

As a retired fireman, today, (9/11/2011), holds a special meaning... I was working on a wildland fire on the Eldorado National Forest on Sept. 11, 2001. In fire camp, we had a "State of California" communication trailer with satellite TV showing real time video of the planes crashing into the towers.

All the hard work that my fire team and I had done on that fire met nothing! I felt like someone had kicked me in the stomach, I felt beat-up... I felt mentally & physically exhausted! And I just wanted to go home, and see my family...and be with them.

For myself and many other fireman, that day was surreal, more like a dream or nightmare... It was really hard to process what had happened that day.

It wasn't until I got home from that fire, did I allow myself to cry for my fallen 343 brothers. And to truly realize how much that day had changed my life, and the world around me... forever!


10 years later... I just want to thank our brave serviceman, (and servicewomen), firemen, and police for their service to our country. I honor you everytime I ride my harley, when someone comes up to me, and asks, "What is the meaning of the "343" on your bike?" I can tell them what that number means!

Engine 57 is another sad story of loss...which I will share on a later date....last pics is our new apparatus here in Shasta Lake City.

Thank-you for your public sevice!
