    You do realize that this happened almost 8 years ago, right? (12/3/99)

    The Code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules.

    Still good to recognize the ones who had died. Doesn't matter how long ago it was.

    Umm, no. Just stop talking. You aren't remembering or recognizing anything, especially when you post it like a news story that is something new. Please take the advice in all your other posts and just stop talking until you figure out how to be "more smarter".

    Maybe you should apply to be a moderator if you think his post is "wrong" in its place. Keyboard toughguy... The name of this forum is " Line of Duty: In Memory Of ". What does it matter that we are posting a recent LODD or remembering fallen brothers from the past. There are plenty of similar threads in this forum doing the same.

    Ease up man, especially in a thread remembering 6 fallen brothers from a real bad situation that probably wound up helping your dept get stuff that you couldnt afford in the first place.

    If you knew the history behind the individual in question, you would realize I'm not just being some "tough guy". Trust me, there was a lot more to this than me randomly deciding to pick on him.

    does it negate a tribute to fallen bretheren?

    just relax and ignore him if he bothers you that bad.

    it's about time someone shares the same philosophy I do. "If you don't like it, then don't read it!" Thanks!

    Are you an Explorer or firefighter?

    Exp 343 and leather ....

    If you were doing a remembrance you do it on that anniversary, not any date at random. If you were both mature enough you would know that. Oh, and by the way, I too am of the opinion that this section is for recent LODD's.

    I honestly feel to discuss the fire is alright but to reprint their names isn't letting them RIP

    granted it was random to post it in August, but how does maturity on both of our parts enter into it? NMFire obviously had or has a bone to pick with the Explorer guy and he was walking all over the guy just for posting a remembrance thread.

    Maybe you should put in to be an admin, then you can change the name of the forum to whatever suits you and the way you feel.

    Look Kid, I have been in this game way longer than you have been alive. Almost half again when you add my volunteer time to the mix. When you get a little age you will understand exactly what I said. I have a young man on my shift that is your age, can't tell him a thing. I take that back, he can learn. When I use Mr. and his last name he knows he is fixing to get burn't and he had better back up. If I had thought about treating my officers when I started the way my Chief lets the guys act today I would be pulling hose until my tongue hung out.

    The evidence of God's presence far outweighs the
