Thank You LT, for the warm welcome. I will share my experiences with permanent IOD, and a failed NYS VFBL Statutes meant to provide a new foundation for us fallen injured Firefighters.

My thought on the word "Fallen" means any Firefighter who can never go back to being a Firefighter; whether alive or at Heaven. Ultimate Sacrifice says it all. I was fortunate Heaven gave me the Corner of my Life Card back after performing my last, yet successful (superhuman) water rescue.

Keep Safe.
