An Instagrammed snap from Springsteen's wife Patti Scialfa on January 15 showing Sam Springsteen in full firefighting gear commemorated the special moment.
"My youngest son, Sam, graduated from Monmouth ****** Fire Academy tonight," Scialfa posted, along with the hashtags "#Proud" and "#OurFamilyHero." The Boss also attended the event, which saw 42 graduate.
Sam Springsteen, of Colts Neck, New Jersey, will officially be a member of the Colts Neck Fire Department. "He's very smart," Monmouth ****** Fire Marshal Henry Stryker III told the Asbury Park Press of the new fireman. "He enjoyed what he was doing." Stryker said of the extensive, 188-hour program, "This is not an easy course. There's a lot of physical stuff and a lot of book work."
