    Default Class "A" at a graduation ???

    One of my best friends will graduate from the academy (a different Dept.) tomorrow......another friend (from yet another Dept.) has stated that he will be attending the graduation in his class "A" uniform.

    So....My question is, Brothers & Sisters,:

    Would you wear your class "A" uniform for this function?



    Thank you

    When I attended my best friend and his brother's graduation from Hartford's Academy, there were many people there in Class "A" uniforms.

    Does your Class "A" uniform have a jacket?

    As a guest to the graduation I would wear you class A. Jacket, tie, Hat the whole costume. Most graduations I have gone to the fire service guests wear class A as well as the presenters. The class is made up of new guys that most often don't have class A's and wear a class B with hat and tie.

    Now if I remember, doesnt 'Class A' have a different meaning? I believe a local department deamed it 'Class *********'

    Ignore him...he's from Northern New England

    If you don't want to make the trip, then just dress nicely. You can go the shirt and tie route or wear khakis and a polo shirt.

    Hey Explorer, when you grow up you'll understand what it means to put that uniform on. What our Brothers & Sisters have sacrificed to give that uniform and this profession it's meaning.

    gfdtrk4, I'd wear the uniform if at all possible.

    42VTExplorer,

    Your attempt at humor fell short here...WAY SHORT!

    If you feel the uniform is for ***-holes, I suggest you see how far one fits up yours.

    Exactly. My humor did fall way short. Should have known. I also do know that the Class A uniform isnt for *******s, that was only a failed attempt at being funny, but also wise.

    Way to go rookie. Been around for 28 posts and have the crust angry with you. Not a good way too go. Suggest you step back and look at who is posting around here. A lot of years of experience, and tons of knowledge. But you won't get any of it with the reputation you are earning for yourself. Think before you post.
