Welcome to the crew
I am writing in reference to the article Bridget Ortigo wrote about training with the Marshall Fire Department, just to say that it was very honest and well done.
I had made the same offer, to come train with us, to a couple of your male reporters in the past, but she was the first one with the moxie to take me up on it.
I hope it was a good experience for her. She is now an honorary member of C shift.
