Back in 2011, NBC embattled Anchor Brian Williams penned a piece for USA Weekend talking about his days as a volunteer Fireman back in his hometown.
He tells the heartwarming story of saving a puppy in a house fire. Williams writes:
My firehouse was a modest engine company — three engines, three garage doors and about 30 of the best men I’ve ever known. We fought all the usual fires that break out in the suburbs: brush fires, car fires, dumpsters, dryers, light fixtures — and worst of all, the occasional house, already in flames when we arrived. I remember one such house fire — the structure was fully involved with flames and smoke. I was wearing a breathing apparatus, conducting a search on my hands and knees, when I felt something warm, squishy and furry on the floor of a closet. I instinctively tucked it in my coat. When I got outside, I saw two small eyes staring up at me, and I returned the 3-week-old (and very scared) puppy to its grateful owners.
But in a 2005 interview with Esquire magazine, Williams says it was two puppies that he saved:
I would never, ever mention my name in the same sentence with a member of the FDNY. They were our personal gods--the best at what they do. Those guys who went into the World Trade Center, they knew. Like Captain Terry Hatton said to one of his friends: "Brother, something tells me I won't see you again." And then he went in. All I ever did as a volunteer fireman was once save two puppies. But I have an understanding--a link to those guys. Going to sleep with my boots, pants, jacket, and helmet next to the bed for so many years is still, to this day, the best training for the life I lead.
So Brian? Was it one puppy to two? And did they or did they not have an RPG strapped to them when you rescued them?
