I have no ambition in this world but one, and that is to a be a fireman. The position may, in the eyes of some, appear to be a lowly one; but we who know the work which the fireman has to do believe that his is a noble calling. Our proudest moment is to save lives. Under the impulse of such thoughts, the nobility of the occupation thrills us and stimulates us to deeds of daring, even of supreme sacrifice.- Chief Edward F. Croker
In Honor Of Those Lost
Our enemies have made the mistakethat America’s
enemies always make. They saw liberty and thought
they saw weakness. And now, they see defeat.
--George W. Bush, President of the United States.
