The young man was a little brother to us all, wasn't he? A police officer said the young man was going to the firehouse, and I am not one to doubt a police officer. He was responding to a call; not a fire, but a transfer assignment IS a call, is it not? He was not aware of the type of call; he didn't care. He was going to the firehouse, if not to ride the apparatus, then to help his brothers get out the door on the call. Unfortunately, nothing can change what has happened. But at least the government could honor Chris' dedication. Not as many young people are willing to do this anymore. They all need appreciation, and this young man deserves LODD recognition for this tragedy.
Should he get LODD? ABSOULUTELY!
My thoughts and prayers go out to Chris' family, and to his department. May God be with you all in your time of grief.
