i worked in the mines 26 yrs. loved it also. i have lost 3 good friends in the past two months from black lung. if mining is what you want to do i hope you good luck. but coal mining does not only kill underground but also after your career. the friends i lost were all from harlan i even went thru school with them. but i guess if able i would still be a coal miner and always will be but only in my mind. again good luck finding a job.
