Alexandria Fire Fighter Andrew Fredericks

My mother has been an EMS supervisor for the City of Alexandria for 6 years and a paramedic for 12 years and my Dad is a retired Battalion chief for the same department. I was raised in the Fire Department and will die with the fire department (my mother and I have side-by-side boxes for our ashes in the Fire Department memorial here in the city). Andrew Fredericks was a fire fighter for our city for years and finally got the call to work in New York. Our city and country lost a great man (along with many others) that day and this is the one way I can wear his badge of courage on my sleeve (or wrist).
