Glory Days passes 10,000 views
« on: May 15, 2019, 10:47:22 PM »
 "Glory Days" started by Retired FDNY FF Dan Potter, aka "JohnnyGage", has already surpassed 10,000 views by our members in less than two months (started March 24th). The stories by Dan and others, along with pictures from the past, has certainly caught the interest of many members here.

 Thank you for bringing all of us back to those Glory Days of the FDNY.

Thank you Willy for allowing me to contribute my stories on this forum. It has been a pleasure meeting and corresponding with members on this site...It has been fun re-living the stories as I write them, I feel like I'm back in the firehouse with these guys and capers all over again. My wife thanks you for allowing me to write these recollections instead of her hearing them over and over again! And a special thank you to all who have contributed their thoughts and recollections on this thread. I hope some of my stories will remind you of your own  recollections and we can share the "Glory Days" together. A special thanks to the viewers, I appreciate you checking in! It is very encouraging to see the numbers of views grow!

I will be adding new stories in a chronicle order; covering my buff days, working in NYC-EMS during their War Years, more DCFD, L 38, 112, 5 and 31 experiences, some interesting character profiles and remembering WTC. So stay tuned, thanks for reading!   KMG-365

 Those of us who attended the recent Get Together on Saturday May 11th, received one of these "Glory Days - Nycfire.net" mugs from "JohnnyGage". He brought these in and gave one to each member. None of us knew it was coming. Thanks Dan.

 The Glory Days stories have brought members together that maybe worked the FDNY, but might not have seen or heard from each other in years.

 Once again, The Glory Days stories, as well as so many others, might not have been possible if not for Lt Tommy Bendick and his father Retired Captain John Bendick.
