"war hero"

Columbus, OH

#84 Oct 6, 2012
I see all these comments about him being this big war hero...... Ask urself a question, does him being a war hero have anything to do with running a fire dept? Noone is tryin to take away his status of "war hero" but obviously somethin isnt right in the chain of fire depts if this guy that everyone appearently loves so much got put on leave

You all are asking what he has done and no one has said. So I will tell you!
A coalton firefighter happened to be near a scene that Jackson was called to. Being a firefighter he checked it out to make sure everyone was safe. When JFD arrived, this firefighter approached Doug and said that he checked on things and everything seemed to be ok, you know, just to be helpful. Instead of telling the firefighter thank you, he started screaming at him asking him who the F*** he thought he was and to get off his fire scene.
Jackson got called to a possible structure fire on Clay Banner Rd, which is almost to Oak Hill. When 4 firefighter responded, they got in the truck and headed that way, like they always do. Doug was mad that he didn't make truck and refused to send them back up.
Doug has called the police dept to tell at them for canceling the fire dept when they were not needed.
He has screamed and cussed out random people on the fire dept for differences of opinion.
He has screamed at the mayor and safety director for not agreeing with him.
These are just the basic simple complaints! Also, for everyone's info, Randy Health did not want to put him on leave, but with all the complaints, he was forced to. No one wants his job, except maybe Kida, but no one pays attention to her.
You have to look passed the war hero status! Yes, we are all very greatful for everything he has done for this country. I couldn't imagine what he and his family went through. But if you have been around him, you will notice changes that have called to question his ability to handle his job as fire chief. You cannot have a brain injury like that and expect him to be perfectly normal like before, and we aren't expecting him to be. But those who are mad about the city's decision, when he gets a firefighter killed, are you going to come and explain to my family why my husband is no longer here to help raise our children?

I agree. I would not depend on them. Too many bosses, everyone wants to be in charge.
Just so you know, no one, except Kida Newell has ever expressed wanting Doug's job.

But yet the military and private doctors all released Doug saying he is ok? I'm sorry I find it all too fishy to me. Not once has any of this ever been mentioned. I don't think anyone should be put in arms way but I also do
Not feel a witch hunt should be done either. First it's saying that Doug forgot to run equipment, now it's he's being mean to others, basically a cry that be don't play we'll with others. I know some involved and they are fire fighters not one ever heard of some that you say. To me it's gonna come down to who says what but who has proof.

If Firefighters Wife's claims are true then all one has to do is look at the symptoms of PTSD, which goes hand in hand with Traumatic Brain Injury. Even tho I cannot stand the sight or sound of Heath/Sheward, I think that maybe they are in the right by asking him to take a test OUTSIDE of the VA....it's not like the Military has a gleaming record on the way vets are treated. TBI and PTSD are 2 very real problems facing our troops that have been in combat and when 18-20 vets are taking their lives everyday in this country its time someone step up and do something about it.
Guess all we can do now is wait and see what comes of it......

And Mrs. Reed shouldn't have been so praising of Mr. Heath last yr when she bad mouthed John Peters in the local paper. Looks like her negativity came back to slap her in the face.

Clueless and funny, huh? You people are what's wrong with society and why so many vets are left homeless and without the help they need. Keep on ignoring what's right in front of you. Not 1 word I said was a lie and it is far from funny...but this is jackson county, so it's not like I should expect more.
