Irving and Grapevine in Pink as well

We made two stops in the Dallas area at station 2 in Irving and station 1 in Grapevine. The Chief of Irving came out to see the truck along with all the guys from station 2, he thanked us for our work as fire fighters and gave us their honorary coin of excellance. He too plans on having his department do something to honor the women of Irving. We left Irving and visited the Grapevine fire department to say hello to the guys and was really impressed with the reception we got, especially when we just popped in the station uninvited. They came out to the truck and we shared some stories and had a few laughs, we had dinner and then they took us over to the Hilton where they got us two rooms for the night. Their Union President took care of the bill for the rooms and is already planning for us to come back next year. They are also planning the design of their shirts to honor their women as well and I can't wait to see what they look like.
