Firemen

Firemen

Dear Editor:

Before moving to Rockaway, I knew a few firemen. Living here, I met many. Over the past 25 years, these many have to me. Obvious commonalities: loyalty, honesty, Straightforwardness, and individual initiative. On 9/11/01, I think I understood why. Firemen don’t talk about what they have to do, they do what they have to do. They depend on themselves and on each other. Phonies can’t exist in these ranks.

The firemen that lost their lives on that day exemplify the dedication of the whole department to a way of life.

God bless them all.

FRANK McCARTHY
