RECRUIT HEAGNEY

Recruit Heagney, a 26-year-old, 6-year Marine Corps combat veteran who served in Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom 2005 OIF 2005 as an 0311 rifleman, threw in the towel on the Marines and joined the Sycuan fire academy to fulfill a childhood dream to become a firefighter. Heagney became the class guide, called cadence for the class and shares his experiences during video interviews.

RECRUIT ARMSTRONG

Recruit Reagan Armstrong Jr., an Apache Indian of the White Mountain Indian Reservation, joined the Sycuan program after completing a full wildland fire season and some volunteer training with his reservation fire department.
