Whoever heard of such a person?

"Volunteer firefighters are a breed unto themselves. Whoever heard of a person who is willing to be on 24-hour duty without pay for the dubious privilege of protecting his neighbor's life and property?"

"Whoever heard of a person who will dash from their desk and ride a "fire wagon" to the scene of the alarm, ruining their clothes, neglecting their business, risking their life and exhausting themselves physically, not for money, but because they believe in serving their community?"

"Whoever heard of a person who will sacrifice time with their spouse and children just to attend endless trainings where they learn how to function as a volunteer servant on behalf of their fellowmen? Or whoever heard of a person willing to rush out in the cold and dark of the middle of the night not knowing what dangers they will encounter?"

"Whoever heard (in this day and age) of a person who is crazy enough to be worrying about the other fellow?"

"Well, if you don't know the answers to those questions, look around your local firehouse. You will see people who are not out protesting and demonstrating and complaining because they are too busy living up to the image of a good American."

"You will see people whose forefathers were made of the same stuff, and that is why we have inherited this wonderful land."

"Let us all follow the example set by our volunteer firefighters and give them the support they deserve."
