 For some of the members here, we all first met Lt Gary Howard when we visited the FDNY Museum on Spring St (?) in lower Manhattan. Gary treated us great and was really into the job.

 Prayers for a Great Guy, Retired FDNY Lt Gary Howard

Gary was a Lieutenant in 75 Engine while I was in 33 Truck. He is a charter member of Squad 41 where again I had the good fortune of working with him. He is among the best of the best and is in my prayers daily.
