A foundation representing firefighters who die in the line of duty is calling for Congress to strip the Centers for Disease Control of its role investigating firefighter deaths.
About 100 firefighters a year die in the line of duty in the U.S. Heart attacks on the job and vehicle accidents on the way to the fires account for about half. The other half are traumatic deaths while fighting fires.
The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
All the great things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope.
I Walk The Line was my third record.
