Great news - an order was published today and "The New Haven 20" are to be officially promoted. It took six long years and a trip to the Supreme Court but equality before the law was upheld. There will be more on this in another post, but for now say a prayer of thanks.
The promotion ceremony will tke place on Wednesday, December 2nd at 3:30 PM at the New Haven Regional Fire Training Academy, located at 230 Ella T. Grasso Blvd., New Haven Connecticut.
The New Haven 20 have been very supportive of the FDNY and of Merit Matters, as well. A large turnout would be very much appreciated by them. Class A uniforms should be worn.
