I apologize up front Stoch for what you are about to encounter! You have to be tough to have worked with Captain Willy O'Dennis!

Many of us here know Doug Marra, "Aux War Years Cap". Just last Thursday Doug was thanking The Boss for allowing him to go back to his former User Name here.

Doug is one of the guys who has a wealth of information when it comes to the apparatus of the FDNY.

Yes Doug, we will keep you in Our Prayers for a full recovery.

Thank you Chief JK for passing this info onto us.
Latest progress report from Doug aka AuxWarYearsCap, wanted the members to know that he maybe released from the hospital this Friday where he has been treated for both COPD and a Kidney issue

He also stated that he let his roommate use his cellphone later to find out that the guy has contacted COVID19. Apparently before any patient is sent home they are checked for COVID. So that roommate has been transferred to another floor

Thanks Doug for keeping us updated and we sure hope everything goes okay for you and FRIDAY you get to head home.

Welcome Stoch. Please add any stories, comments or tales. Also - thank you for your military service.

If you worked with Tough Willy on a 2-man engine and survived listening to his stories, you must have had very good ear plugs or very bad hearing.

TO ALL MEMBERS.....

I would like to THANK U ALL for the get well greeting while lying in a hospital bed. It meant so much to me and helped me to keep my head on straight reading all the jobs that have been happening the past week or so.

I was discharged even though my kidney count and a few other counts got allot higher. I follow up with my doctor Monday and then the fun starts with numerous specialists.

If l missed anyone's birthday...special event or new member to the group l do apologize for now acknowledging.
To those members H.B...GOOD LUCK..WELCOME ABOARD..ECT

I had been honored to buff at E 319
( The Lone Wolf ) from June 1959 to June 2019 ... I had a great 60 year run.
But things change...new bosses..allot of new probies including a great female firefighter. I wish the best of luck to The Lone Wolf members to continue the tradition of the greatest fire dept in the world. The FDNY
With much regards and respect

Doug Marra. aka AuxWarYearsCapt
FDNY ENGINE CO. 319

So glad Rev Elwood put me onto this podcast. Fantastic stuff

My only worry for this Thursday is they may not have enough time to fit all Dan's stories in lol

Looking forward to it 'Johnny Gage"

Thanks Brad

Guys, don’t forget to tune in tonight.

For those of us who still don’t have power, the show can be seen on their Gettin Salty YouTube channel later

By the way, hats off to all those utility workers who are out there working to get our electric power back. Meantime fire up the outside grills with plenty of steaks, burgers and dogs
