Huff agreed, adding, “Firefighting is a true brotherhood, unlike any other out there. Brandon always asks about the fire house. He loves the cycles. He’s always asking about what’s going on in the club.”
The Axe Men was a club that formed in Detroit, Mich., back in 1988.
“The day he was sworn in as a firefighter, it just kind of hit me,” Huff said. “I’m thinking to myself, he’s a sworn IAFF member, so realistically he can be a member of the Axe Men. I founded the Indy chapter and for him to be a part of it is absolutely amazing. I want to raise as much as we can. I would hope in the $5,000 range for the evening, but anything’s going to help the family and that’s what it’s about.”
