A special message from the team members regarding their entry into Lincoln yesterday.
As we approached Lincoln Fire Station 1 we were met by the Lincoln Honor Guard, Pipes and Drums, on-duty crews, media, and several people from the general public. One of the flags that draped the steel over the trip was taken off, given to the honor guard commander, folded to its proper form, and given to me, who presented it to the Lincoln fire chief. It was a very choked up moment. Thank you to Lincoln Fire Rescue who went way above to make us feel welcome, feeding us dinner and breakfast.
