I was drafted 5 Dec 1945. I started my fire protection career on the docks in Iceland with a 1000 GPM trailer mounted Pump--it was called a 1000 GPM pumper--pulled behind a weapons carrier--didn't know what a fire hydrant was (all my experience was drafting from the ocean)  until I got to Kelly Field, TX.  I done the Climate Hanger thing at Eglin--I was there when it partial burned in 54 or 55 I forget which. We'll compare notes one of these rainy days when we are loafing.
