Sammi – please post the site for ordering the honoring ribbons for fallen firefighters
BB, thanks for the link to post messages to those on the Star. (unfortunately I was unable to post)
TO ALL: if you were unable to catch the CSpan special, get a copy! View it TWICE. Although it provides a good overview of the wildland fire scene, not many western fire camps, except at a major complex provide all those anemities.
COMMENTS: by-passing Mr Pendleton & Mr Hamilton (good panel): lots of clean faces & new nomex on camera at the Green Knoll.
1) of major concern to me, was the amount of jewelry worn by those fire fighters – if ya can’t have steel in the boots, why would anyone want to have metal ANYWHERE on the body?
2) I was very disappointed by the political non-speak of Rep Peterson’s response.
3) did anyone notice how the “kids” on the line could not explain their desire to be willdland firefighters – it’s indescribable! Otis Root (Sho Ban shots) probably expressed it most eloquently. (personally, I especially liked the interview with Ricky Dann)
4) pay close attention to the interview with Mr Carvelho – he has been around for a long time & didn’t gain his reputation easily. Pray that when he retires someone equally competent can fill his shoes.
5) won’t comment on the callers…………….. nor the short cut off on the part of the moderator.
