    Good on the brothers from FDNY, even though the press still calls them NYFD. Hoping for their speedy and safe return home!

    Actually, they still are POGs, persons other then grunts. Grunts are a super special bread and attained only by going to SOI or the Army's Infantrymans course. However, fighter pilots and helo jocks are given the name Air Grunts by us because of their work for us. PoGs yes, but NOT PONTI which is a person of no tactical importance.
