Hello From An Aspiring Firefighter
I love this site! I just joined today, but I've been lurking for a while now.
I've always wanted to be a firefighter since I was little. I joined the U.S. Air Force after high school with hopes of becoming a firefighter. Unfortunately, Uncle Sam needed me as a combat communicator.
It was hard for me to separate after 6 years, but my heart was set on becoming a firefighter. I'm now in Vacaville, CA and will be attending Solano Community College to attend the Fire Academy, as well as pursue my AS in Fire Technology.
I hope to learn from the many veterans, as well as other students in similar situations.I want to fill my calling, and to give the best in me.

Thanks for the words, fellas.
I'm a little overwhelmed about everything I have to do. I'm going the Firefighter and Paramedic route. But, I'm slowly figuring out everything I have to do, and classes I have to take.
I never realized just how much work and education was needed and available for the fire service. I'm excited to get started.I want to fill my calling, and to give the best in me.
