    I like the picture and the quote. That quote, I do believe that it was true at the time it was spoken. Now, there maybe more guns but I do wonder what percentage of our country would stand up against invasion.

    Anyways- welcome to the monkey.

    @kellory, yes I have heard that but I still like the line.

    @W3esc how do you like being on the fire dept? I know the initial training is many hours but after is it time consuming?

    I love it I'm only a volunteer right now going on my 5th or 6th year I wouldn't trade it for anything. It also helps being on a pretty busy company we run ~700 calls a year. It's a family tradition my dad used to be chief and now he is the main driver for us. I'm looking to go paid soon.

    I do as well, and believe there is a great deal of truth to it, regardless of whom said it.
