I concur, especially with the numbers being so high for missing volunteer firefighters and paid professionals in Japan. Hopefully, their culture permits for critical incident stress debriefing.
There is a cultural problem. They are only just now admiting to PTSD.
If we mean what we say about "Never Forget" then we need to add "J193" to the "343", "W6", and "C9" list.

We also need to honor the Japanese firefighters who continue to poisen themselves with radioactivity at Fukashima.
Hmmm, I wonder what Chris Brennan would have to say...probably that the J193 (nice coinage by the way, Ben) were just out for the glory. Funny how being a "local, sometimes satirical", every-other-Friday 'columnist' gives one such great insights.
Reply to Mr. Brennan coming up...with a link to this story.
I look forward to reading it.
I can't find a link to a comment page on the Op-Ed piece's site.

Am I missing something.
