Rep. Pete King Attends FDNY Retiree Breakfast
This morning's heavy rain storms couldn't keep retired FDNY firefighters from showing up for their monthly breakfast meeting at the Lindencrest Diner in Lindenhurst. Whenever I am not in Washington, I try to get together with these guys and listen to their stories. While most of the morning consists of jokes, insults and barbs, the breakfast always starts on a serious note with President Eddie Fusco reading the names of troops killed in action that month and asking for prayers for sick and deceased brother firefighters. I find it inspiring to see the camaraderie in the room and always appreciate having the opportunity to join with them.
