Brad,

Do you know if Lt. Bill Wargo might be related to John Wargo who was associated with the MV Dayliner at West Point in 1972?

 G-man, I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but one time I asked Frank D, aka "fdce54", "when is it the best time to take a nap" ? Frank told me, "the best time to take a nap is right after you wake up in the morning".

 Frank M. aka "manhattan", in reference to Lt Bill Wargo being associated with the MV Dayliner at West Point, I don't think that is the case.

I was only able to attend the Satruday visits to Norwich and New London.  Willy D did a super job organizing these visits and the brothers of both departments were fantastic to greet us and show us around their stations.  Nice to meet Elwood and Frank, also.

Yes he is Tom. I was reviewing the photos on my camera. Willy D doesn't know how to say cheese.

This is the last rig Captain Willie D rode in before he retired. You can even see his Captain's helmet still up on the dashboard, left there in honor of Willie.

In this photo we have the two "D" brothers. On the left is Willie D and in the middle is John D (johnd248). It was great listening to John D and Willie D trading barbs. The third gentlemen is retired Norwich firefighter Tom Lafreniere who was one of two firefighters who survived a truck fire and explosion that killed four other firefighters.

Extremely hard to get a picture of Willy D with his mouth closed.
