"Death is nothing at all" and
misc. quotes from fire and rescue
workers...some that didn't return

You know, my Dad is retired Air Force. He served 27 years, almost all of that was in "Crash Control" on the flight line. That means that they were protecting the planes when they were coming in. If one was in distress, they rolled the trucks out "just in case." He was lucky they never had a major disaster on his watch - the planes always landed safely or with minimal problems. Funny how something like September 11th changes your outlook of things. I guess I never really thought about how dangerous that work really was. . .
Thanks for the post, Sirgawain. . .and for the ping, ST!
