My son, Amos, is learning how to be a hometown hero, AKA firefighter. He always has had a magnetic attraction for anything pyro, so this is a natural. His lovely wife, Cara, posted these pictures of the Monterey Fire Academy's first "flag burn" exercise (whatever that means) to facebook. Since I own bragging rights on the brave, handsome lad, I snagged them for you to see here, especially, you, Jimmy.
That's Amos, standing in front of the platoon.
Our local hometown heroes were in action last Friday morning, saving our town. I didn't know about the fire until it was already out, but the fireman were still on the job when I got there. You can see those photos on Facebook or Here.
