Sound of a Siren
The year is 1963. Bud Massie and Joe Jones are both Dallas firefighters and both they, and their wives Marsha and Betty, are close friends. On Monday, August 26, Bud and Joe are riding Truck 15 in the Oak Cliff area of Dallas, Texas while Marsha and Betty are spending the day together. This is a story of tragedy told from a different perspective, not a firefighter perspective, but a family member perspective, because a line of duty death does not occur in a vacuum. Like a stone cast in a pond, the ripples expand outward.
