WESLEY CHAPEL, Fla. – Pasco County Fire Rescue is honored to help a WW2 veteran celebrate his 100th Birthday! Tom Flood earned a Purple Heart and was severely injured from a motor attack. He also went on to work for NASA on the Mercury and Apollo programs as a tradesman. We are proud to have Mr. Flood in our Pasco County Fire Rescue family. His son recently retired as a Captain from our agency.

Members of Pasco County Fire Rescue, Pasco County Sheriff's Office, and 19 jeeps from bay area clubs drove by Mr. Flood's home to wish him a happy birthday!
