Hey Jason! Thanks for the add. I read some of your other comments and you said some pretty powerful things. Thanks. We truely appreciate you as a military man and we are proud that you guys appreciate us for what we do. Thanks. Good to meet you. Keep in touch, sir. Be safe.
The most powerful men of all history have been men of many words
but the most influencial of all leaders have been the ones who use the few.
Traditional politics require long tedious negotiations when sometimes,
a few powerful words can move mountains quickly !
Everyone has stories to tell and in retrospect, all stories can be narrowed down to just a few words ! It doesn't matter weather you are a leader of nations, a leader of a few or just an individual who cares about many, a simple few words can speak volumes, just as a picture can speak a thousand words.
Soldiers, Navy and Airmen have stories of horrific experiences that only come over the radio in a few words. " Ohh my God, Jesus Christ, This is it ! , Lord forgive me, Love you guys , Susan I love you and the kids !".
A communications specialist must listen to this and not be considered a combatant but is required to maintain discipline and "move on" !
It Takes its toll !! Those who know, know ..

Although I am a soldier by nature I have always had nothing but respect ( NBR ) for firefighters and rescue personnel . A true soldier of the US Army has no prejudice against any service or any person and respects the jobs they do. Fire and Rescue is sometimes unlauded just as the military , only appreciated when you are needed. But the reward of saving just one life , friend or enemy, outweighs the criticism that you have to accept.
I became a member of Police Link and Fire link out of respect for all you do.
As a soldier , I fought a few wars, but you fight a war every day !!! N. B. R. !!!!!!
