 Best wishes to FF Billy Carlson for a Happy and Healthy Retirement. A few of us outside of the FDNY got to chit chat with you a few times. Actually I didn't know that you were a cop in the 83rd, a pretty tough place to be. Or the fact that you were the Vice President of the NY FFs Burn Center and working with the burn camp.

 I don't know if you remember me but anyway, welcome to the Unemployed Club of Retired Members. Actually it's not so bad once you get used to it. Especially on a few cold nights like this.

 Thank you for serving the citizens of NYC as both "The Finest" as well as "The Bravest".

 I guess putting it all together they refer to that as "The Best of Both Worlds".

 Willy

Congrats Billy on a great career and enjoy retirement. Have met Billy on a few occasions - last being after the Tunnel run in Sept when he offered my numerous beers from the cooler he was dragging around

Best wishes and hopefully see him later this year
