    Default Time to eat crow

    Well, after getting turned down in the very late rounds for our Ops Grant I was extremely frustrated, confused and not necessarily anger but a little hurt considering how far along we were.

    But now, this morning at 5:00 AM I received the congratulations letter for the Ops Grant that I was turned down for.

    So, AFG staff I am sorry and I should not have gotten so upset about the turn down.

    Good Day!

    Congratulations. We need to always keep in mind that the AFG staff distributes awards based on the scoring reported by a panel of our peers--many of whom contribute here. Doesn't mean that any of our departments don't need the equipment or don't need the funding--just that (in the opinion of other firefighters) other departments had more compelling needs.

    Now if they'd only get off their duffs and cut loose with OUR 1199a...
