    Retirement is going well. Keeping busy with planning and running training for the 2 FDs. The honey-Do list around the house is growing too!

You have stated that is not the case. You also pointed out how you've gone after him directly numerous times. A very valid point, so I will take you at your word. I hereby withdraw the comment and apologize. (I'm pretty sure you don't care but it IS the right thing to do.)

    Not knowing my department has not stopped you from attacking it's operations or terminology.

    I never stated that I was or was not a Captain. To clear it up, I am not a Captain.
    Truce then!

    Actually, I made one comment about what resources were sent to a single family dwelling fire. I believe I used the phrase overkill. Simply stated, I have no idea what FD you are a member of so it is impossible for me to attack your FD.

    Is DC Gonzo really a DC, and if so do you really think his parents named him Gonzo?


    I am a DC, I acquired the nickname Gonzo my first week on the FD.

    It's a rare breed of highly intelligent, selectively motivated man of Italian heritage. Has trouble finding motivation for things beyond the realm of fire, ems, guns, and family. They tend to struggle in the "regular" job fields, but will excel if given the opportunity in the public safety field.

    Chenzo is a nickname that MY son got from his friends in high school. You see his given name is Vincienzo.

    He is a Lieutenant on one of the POC FDs so I suppose he could call himself LtChenzo...

    So now with the honey-do list growing you will be working harder than ever....for less money!

    Bones - ya, cuz I look like a walking skeleton. Was given to me as a nick name 30 years ago.

    42 - 30+ year member of station 42.

    Current rank - firefighter. Was 2nd Lt, 1st Lt, Captain, Deputy Chief, Assistant Chief, Department Chief. and then went through the line a second time. EMS - went up to 1st Lt. Went Past Active due to lack of available time. Also was member of college FD in PA and vol and paid EMS while in college.
    "This thread is being closed as it is off-topic and not related to the fire industry." - Isn't that what the Off Duty forum was for?

    Perhaps he owns and operates a naval vessel of some sort.

    Maybe he is a huge Jack Sparrow fan.

    The first time through the ranks was just practice.
    Train to fight the fires you fight.
