The other night, I met someone new and she asked me if I had a lot of firefighter's wives who read me as well as Cop's Wives.
I paused and thought about it.
"I don't think so." I went on to tell her that I often hear from Military Wives, and I know for sure that there are a few that check in here pretty regularly.
This woman made the point that wives of cops and firefighters must share a lot of the same concerns. I agreed. I just don't know any.
In fact, I know several cops who became firefighters. They said that being a cop was a thankless job; at least when you're rescuing someone from a burning building, they tend to be appreciative. I also know a few guys who came out of the Military and joined the NYPD. Right now, Roc has a few guys from his precinct serving a final tour in Iraq or Afghanistan. They insist it's safer than the South Bronx.
