A long time ago, there was a little boy who wanted to be a fireman. His dream came true 24 years ago today…October 15, 1995. He, along with 200+ in the class of 1995, raised his hand and took an oath to protect the lives and property of the citizens of the City of New York. Unfortunately, this little boy’s firefighting years where cut short after only 10 years on the job…but, what a 10 years it was…probably, the happiest of his life. So, here’s to Joey and the others from that class of 1995. For those no longer with us, rest in peace!! For those still on the job, stay safe!!
