Man, talk about some irony. Too bad he wasnt in Afghanistan where the people who actualy did it are....

"NEW YORK (AP) -- A New York City firefighter who had responded to the World Trade Center attack was killed in Iraq while serving with the Army National Guard, city officials said.

Sgt. Christian P. Engeldrum, 39, is the first FDNY firefighter to die in Iraq since the U.S.-led war began, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said. Engeldrum was killed Monday when his vehicle came under attack outside Baghdad

Sad article this is. At my firehouse, we have one that left to Iraq to do firefighting. He won't have a gun, but I still hope he'll be OK.

Its terrible how the policies of US put people at risk, to me civilians should not be allowed in Iraq until the country is safe.

And if civilians are to be allowed there they should be able to carry weapons.

Now as for the Firefighter I have to agree with you, skippytjc, is an irony, but is more disgrace that the master mind of it is still free to plan more attacks.

" was killed in Iraq while serving with the Army National Guard, city officials said. "

I understand the confusion tho, I had first not been clear, when i heard the news report, as to whether he was a civilian volunteer there, maybe as a volutneer firefighting brigade, or a trooper.

It makes a lot of sense to have some experienced firefighters in iraq, to quench fires from attacked vehicles and or tow them away.
