Bow Wow Wow

Our base has a Fire Fighter Academy that is used to train military, civilains, an Iraqi Fire Fighters on the latest in professional fire fighting methods and practices. Last night was the graduation ceremony and full bore practice for an ARFF class. ARFF is Airfield Rescue Fire Fighting and is required certification for anyone working at an airfield fire station.

Last night I went out to the ceremony to get some photos for our records and also to work out some low light issues I have with my camera. I got some great shots but I like this one best. I took this at ISO 1600 hand held and it shows one of the Fire Fighters with his back to me and a charged fire hose on his right shoulder.

WOW - what a great photo - that needs to run in National Geographic and I really mean that! Thanks for the bio that went with it. So nice to know some really positive work is being done over there. Keep it up and may God bless!

Your picture and comment remind me that so much goes into training the Iraqis to maintain the free democracy they've created and our men and women in uniform do such a great job to prepare them in that training. Beautiful picture!
