Hi Gary, Thanks for all you've done during the years. I’m a retired Fire Chief and understand the importance of health & fitness for our responders. I joined FF Nation to share my incredible wellness story with everyone. Fitness is only a part of the equation; internal wellness is the real essential for healthy responders. Many of us need to get healthier. If you’re interested in more information about this life changing program please send me an email at:
Thanks, John

Hey Chief Ludwig,
It's nice to see you still out there in the fire service. It's been years since I've seen you here in St Louis. I think about you when I see an incident on the National news in Memphis.
I started a St. Louis Fire dept Blog: It has a Conservative leaning.
There are quite a few St. Louis fire photos posted, If you have some Memphis photos, feel free to post them. My screen name is Eng6

God Bless
