Memory Book for my Cadet sons 18th bday
Firefighters, EMT's and Cadets.
I have a special request .....I am making a memory book for my son John for his 18th Bday this June 30th... He is a Cadet firefighter with Central Pierce Fire & Rescue here in Washington state and attending college to become a Firefighter and I am hoping to get the support of Firefighters/EMT's, Cadets to write a letter encouraging him, offering advice and maybe share a story even maybe include a Picture and I will save them all and add them to his Memory book .I think it would be a book he would treasure forever especially since it would be comming from people he admires and respects so much .. John gave up his Senior yr in HS to enroll in this special college program and he has missed out on all Senior fun and activities.. (Yearbook, Prom, trips and graduation).This will take the place of his Senior Yr Yearbook.
This July he will hopefully become a Volunteer Firefighter with a small local Fire Dept.. Every chance he gets he is scheduling ride-alongs to learn as much as he can and to gain the extra experience he needs.If this is something you think you might be able to support with please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org Thank You

He should have stayed in High School and finished. Unless he gets a GED, he will not be able to get hired by a most fire departments.
They want a High School DIPLOMA or a GED, NO DROP OUTS!!!!
Get back in school, little buddy.

I did it a while back...Like firespec said it doesn't take very long...And the guy will love it...
And allineedisu nobody said anything about it being a career..She said he is going to volunteer...Don't need to have Diploma or GED to volunteer..He made a choice to drop out and its his life....So give the kid a break..If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

Do some of you even read the posts before you respond to them? "He is a Cadet firefighter with Central Pierce Fire & Rescue here in Washington state and attending college to become a Firefighter" The last time I checked you can't get into college without a Diploma/GED, so ranting that he needed to stay in HS is kinda irrelevant. They do have early completion programs for HS you know. Sounds like this kid is ahead of the game. Count me in JoJo. -46
