Hey Son;

If memory serves me correctly, this was the one that the woman kept following the attack crew into the trailer to try and get her purse. Injury to civilian may have occurred when she bumped into the interior attack crew for the third time.

Well Dad that may be true my memory is not what it used to be, I think it is because of not enough Yuengling ot to much, I can't remember.

I can tell you that one of the injured firemen was me, I had the pipe and my knukles on the hand that was on the bail got burnt, good enough for a trip to Chambersburg H. I was thinking the other one was Dave Byers, I seem to remember someone cutting the hand and wrist while venting the windows. This was just a couple of weeks before my roof plunge.

When you comming in for a visit? I will be in your airport on October 6 for about an hour and a half.

Was hoping to have gotten in for the YLD meetings, but just couldn't swing it this year. Crawford and Betty were in for it.
I will be in Rhinebeck, Iowa on October 6th on a multi-million dollar Haz Mat site. Otherwise, would meet you at MSP for a cup of coffee. We would find a way to get you home on later flights. Like maybe a week later!! Be careful out there son.

Take care.
