Hey guys,

I just went through about 50 new member requests from the past couple of months, about a third of which were spam. Looks like the spamming attacks are backing off for the time being. That said, if you were waiting for your membership to be approved, we apologize for the wait. We have to actually take the time to vet each entry to prevent a malware or spamming episode, which are a real pain in the ass. We appreciate your patience. If you happen to still be waiting, it might be because a required field was incomplete or inadequate. For example, if you just entered your first name or some obviously made up one, you may still be in limbo if you haven't received a rejection. In our continuing efforts to make this site an enjoyable one, we need to keep out the spam (and honestly, the occasional nut job).

So if you're one of the 30 or so new members- welcome! There aren't many of these type message boards around anymore and we're a pretty tight group so enjoy it!

Thanks Mike, aka Truck 4. I know one or two of those new members. They told me that they are now members and they appreciate the job you do

Thank you for the opportunity to join this great group. I have enjoyed reading the posts daily for a number of years and have learned a lot about FDNY and its members. My dad was a LT in Pawtucket, RI, retiring in 1983 from L-2 after 37 years, a truck company he began his career on. My nephew is a LT in the Providence, RI, assigned to Tower 1.

Thank You for the honor to be apart of this group. I have been bitten by the FDNY bug. My friend Warren Fuchs invited me and some friends to NYC last October. We got to go to Rescue 5's quarters then over to marine company 9. Also to fire history museum it was an unbelievable experience I would love to go back sometime and see more. I started out in the fire service when I was 14 as a jr firefighter in my local volunteer house. I am currently a lieutenant of our engine company. Thanks again for the opportunity to join

Welcome, Lt Heck! Be sure to check out the FAQ in the "General Discussion" section; it will answer many of the questions that are sure to arise in your mind about FDNY. And don't mind some of the trash talk you'll see; several of us tired old farts, having nothing better to do, treat poor Willy D (nfd2004) like a 70-year old probie (which he richly deserves), but it's all in fun. Again, welcome . . . and have a good time.

Welcome to the site! There are many great friendships that have been born because of this site. Must reading includes Johnny Gage's "Gory Days" and Glory Days post, and the History post including the War Years. There is one character on this site, nfd2004, that insist pizza from Connecticut is the best!:LOL:
