    I am not Australian, but Australian Special Forces, and military

helped us fight in Vietnam. I was there in 1968 and 1969. They worked hand and hand with us, a tough breed of men.

    I was a Crash Rescue Firefighter/Para Rescue for the 7th US Air Force. I was proud to be associated with them, the little that I was able to.

   Just wanted to be associated again through FNN, I was a Fire Fighter for over 18 years.

    Thanks for serving.

Ever since I began the 9/11 Patch Project back in December of 2001, many Australian Firefighters have come forward to participate by wearing one of the 9/11 Tribute Patches on their uniforms. Most recently, the Melbourne World Police & Fire Games team actually had one of our 10 Yr 9/11 Anniversary patches embroidered directly on all team jerseys.
Nearly everyday an order for at least a decal or patch comes in from Australia—more often than any of the other 25 countries that participate.
As a firefighter of 20 years in the Los Angeles area I am honored to share this project with so many Australian Firefighters over the years. Seeing one of the 9/11 Patches on the shoulders of your firefighters is an awesome sight that myself and thousands of other firefighters (including our FDNY brothers) will never forget and always appreciate.
Thanks in advance for sharing this project with your firefighters and our brothers!

My name is David Harmon. I’m an expat recruiter, and X-USAF Firefighter, working out of Dubai, U.A.E. We have a military base here that is operated by the Australian military. They are in need of Firefighters, specifically Aussies. If you are interested or know any Aussies who might be, please have them contact me. We have a total of 77 positions to fill at 3 different levels. At least 50% of the staff are required to be Australian.

Kind Regards,
David Harmon

There's probably a collecter in my FRC that'll help you with one of our bages; I don't have any spares though.

Fire Season? Still in winter weather in my part of the country, structure fire time. The winter season for us usually starts sometime in late Oct early Nov. Other States have different times...
