How are you #StillServing?
This is an update to a prior posting on Still Serving. I was a volunteer firefighter in my community. I had retired due to injuries sustained in Afghanistan. I “unretired” from the fire service in February of 2022 and have resumed my service to my community in that regard. I am on call 24/7 so while I may not go out on a fire call every day, my “national day of service” is every day since I have to be prepared to go out on call at any time.
Why do you do it?
My upbringing (in an English family) gave me a strong sense of duty and service to others. I have many years of experience with the fire service which I feel should not be left “sitting in my recliner” when I am able to use that experience to help my community. The photo(s) included are older ones as I do not as yet have a new one since I just re-joined the fire service.
