    Thumbs up Thanks Crusties

    I just want to thank the wisdom of the COJ president and all other crusties who I have been reading and listening to on these forums. My department must have felt the crust was strong enough to elect me to the position of captian. Also the Chief annouced I am the department training officer. Not a small feat in its self, The department is a combination department with approx. 60 members. I just to thank you all for the info I have absorbed from you all.
    Strength and Honor

    Congrat's Captain! Don't forget, the farther you get away from the nozzle, the dumber you get. this explains a lot about truckies
    Take care of the Brothers, you can't fight a fire without firefighters.

    Illinois-where pertnear is close enough!

    Default Thin or thick?

    You got the double whammy! Promoted to captain and training officer; way to go. The "Order of the COJ" is humbled by your acknowledgement.
    I would hope as you go forward to a successful future, you will keep an open mind and a sense of humor.
    Though this is a very serious business that we are in; when it's time to play, it's time to play.
    Take care of the men in your charge, but more importantly, take care of yourself. Don't neglect your own mental and physical health. And if you need to talk, the crusties are there to talk to you.
    If you want to talk to someone like Stayback, just bang on a stop sign!
    Stay safe.
