    • That the firemen select the best-quality, long-wearing garments available is probably not a military or even political statement.

      Jeans are not necessary for the vast mafority who are not roping cattle or managing horses, and yet we wear them for their comfort and functionality.

  1. Firefighters, regardless of where they are from, are something else. When everyone is running OUT of a building, they are running TOWARDS a burning building. Takes a special kind of person to run TOWARD danger.
