Woodbury's Schlichting serves near and far
During his last tour in Afghanistan, Woodbury firefighter Greg Schlichting woke up to a fire that took down an operational hut made of plywood and Plexiglas.
The fire was so large he had to resist jumping in and fighting the blaze without resources. It was like an inferno that escalated so fast nobody could’ve saved the satellite equipment, computers or any of the technology. And it didn’t help that it took nearly two hours to get a fire truck out there from a larger base.
