    My younger brother (he's 32) graduated from Coral Springs Fire Academy tonight. I'm so proud of him. Their class dedicated their graduation to the 9 firefighters who lost their lives in South Carolina. :patriot:

    I'm so thankful for all you who risk your lives daily.

    Thank you, guys. :hugs:

    :ffighter:

    Let him know "Now the real work starts".

    It's the greatest profession in the world (I think). Tell him to stay focused, avoid so-called extreme sports for his probationary year. Horror stories abound regarding those that just...couldn't...avoid their extreme hobbies for a year of probation.

    Oh yeah, congrats! The tower is no joke!

    Well, he's not into extreme hobbies at this point in his life.

    He's married with 2 little girls. No time for that. ;)

    His wife has been so supportive of his change in professions. The past 6 months he had to continue working while attending the Academy at night and weekends.

    Now he's going to be spending 3 months in school for EMS. It's going to be a tough year for them, but I know it will be worth it.
