    Default A Fellow Firefighter Needs Your Help

    Hi Guys,
    A friend of mine is a fellow firefighter here in Missouri. He and his fiance are taking part in a contest through a local radio station. They are competing with 3 other couples to win a Mega Wedding. The winner is determined by voting. The couple that they are closest to has posted terrible things about him as a firefighter and firefighters and public sedrvants in general. They have accused public servants of piggybacking on the 9/11 tragedy to get support, when they clearly don't deserve it. It is sickening to me as I'm sure it is to you. He has stated that he didn't want to get into a war of words with them, thus taking the high road. I got to thinking and thought that I should reach out to fellow firefighters to help his cause. I will post the link to the poll and hope to get A LOT of votes from you brave men and women. I will also post a link to their facebook group so you guys can stay updated on the voting. Also, if you read through the comments in ttheir facebook page, it will contain some helpful hints on how to maximize your voting numbers. Thank you all for everything you do, and thank you for helping Alan and Krissy. God Bless and happy voting.

    Here is the link to vote...Couple #3 is our couple:
    http://y98.radio.com/mega-wedding-vo...vorite-couple/

    Here is the link to their facebook page:
    http://www.facebook.com/?ref=home#!/...340017913&ap=1

    I would post a link to the comments section where these horrible remarks were made over and over again, put polldaddy.com has shut down the comments section due to this misuse.

    Again, thank you for your help.

    Well, she is HOT, and the radio station is ok to listen to... Voted. They are barely beating out couple number 1 though.

    Hi Guys,
    The race is on and it is close, very close. Every vote counts, so you can still vote. You can also vote multiple times. The contest ends Sunday so we are making a huge push to end up on top. There is also a second way to vote. you can vote through text message. It's free. Just text "Couple #3" to 59898. You can vote via text up to 10 times a day, so please help if you can. Again, thank you for all who have helped already and thanks in advance to those who are continuing to help. God Bless and happy voting.
