    Coincidentally I was doing research this past week on violence towards firefghters, for an article I am writing for our local paper concerning our departments recent purchase of bullet proof vests. I am a 3rd generation firefighter and cannot imagine what my grandfather would think reading an article like this and watching as firefighters are forced to wear body armor to do their job.
    May God bless and be with the firefighters of the Waterbury, CT. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.
