Popular 1919 song reflected on the results of farm boys seeing the sights as World War I soldiers.
He may never be the same. From his post:
I was able to have a quick interaction with some of the Firefighters assigned to the station with Mark and the Ambulance crews, nothing more than a quick introduction between calls, but it was later in the morning when I learned I don’t have it nearly as good as I thought.
While heading out to the pouring rain, I bumped into the station cleaning crew mopping the floors. The fireman don’t do the big housework. No wonder mark was so surprised when I gloved up and cleaned toilets back home.
Later in the morning still, I met the Station’s French Chef. They don’t cook their own food either. These are two things I think identify the firehouse as a home. It seemed more like a school than a fire house.
