Back to work
Chet began working out in preparation to his testing prior to returning to active duty and found he was able to handle it well.
At 8am on Monday morning, Chet went to the Academy to be tested, having made the arrangements on Friday.
He passed all the testing and was given the aok to return to active duty by Chief McConnikee.
On Wednesday, April 18, 1979, Chet Kelly returned to active duty with Station 51 to a rousing welcome from both the oncoming and off going crews. He felt great and knew he was back where he belonged.
He had a beautiful wife, great son and healthy 2-week-old daughter. He had family who loved him and friends who cared about him as much as he did for them. He felt he was the luckiest man alive.
Closing Notes from Robert. This story was a challenge to write in a couple ways. For one thing My co-author and I use different computer programs She uses Microsoft Works 6.0 I use Word 2000. Also The Characters I own Which are Julie, Ming, the Rest of Federal Rescue along with the Crew of Hoop Star One are from a book that takes place between 2014 and 2018 where as Emergency takes place when I was a real little kid and St. Elsewhere from which we 'borrowed' the Craigs and Dr. Auschlander takes place during the eighties. Yet All that and My having to make trips to Washington DC three times in the course of writing this story it still got done.
