One of the things that makes the career of Fire fighting so special is the traditions that surround the department. One of the biggest things that I have missed since Frank went to City of Atlanta Fire was the lack of special recognition for all the hard work these guys do,but I can't begin to say how that has changed...This year, the department held the first ever pinning ceremony for all the fire fighters who received the rank of Sergeant. Frank was one of those fire fighters and the girls and I were so excited to be apart of this special event!
This year, they had each of the fire fighters called by name, had their families pin their badges onto their coats, and then they were sworn in. It was a beautiful ceremony! (and the big wigs were very impressed with our girls! They even were mentioned in the speeches! Got to love the triplet attention!)
