Married Hot Shot Foremen:

There’s at least one on the SQF. Married to my son’s godmother. Not sure if he’s still the Foreman…think he may have moved on to fire management by now.

Married Smokejumpers:

Approximately 10-15% of the McCall jumpers are married. A small handful have children. The Payette has a small family compound on Mission to accommodate those that live in McCall only during the summer. A small number of jumpers own homes and are settled in the area. For a specific breakdown call N, the base manager (that is if he has time to answer his phone…which isn’t likely right now.) (N’s wife was the nurse who broke the news to me as she swished my last pregnancy test in the Petri dish. )

Long term relationships? Not easy…or even probable given the dynamics and demands of the fire world…but definitely possible.
