Hello to all..A local dept near by, in Glasgow West Virginia, just lost a fireman, while trying to perform a water rescue. As best we can tell, he is perished, but no body has been recovered, only a PFD and dry suit. So the fire marchalls office, has switched the status from rescue, to recovery. So, please keep his family and friends in your toughts and prayers. And if/when a body is recovered, i will inform you all.. He was 32 years of age,was marries, and had 2 young children. Thanks to all, and stay safe brothers and sisters!!!!
