About: Remember Wilberg

So much Respect for the guys on the Mine Rescue Team. My very first Boss Steve Radmall (not sure how to spell it sorry Steve) told me about this my 1st night underground. May The Brave 27 Rest In Peace U may be Gone but Never Forgotten. Great Documentary.
I worked over 20years in pike county Kentucky coal mine I've been through a lot in there fires. water . Got my arm cut off love all my brothers that's ever worked in coal mine I would go back tomorrow my heart goes out to those guys
My dad was in the cover/thumb nail photo. Bottom row, 4th from the left. Dale Jones. I still have his award plaque from the recovery team hanging on the wall, and handed down the specially engraved Bible his team gave my mother after his death to my sister in law. I’ve never seen a greater group of men. Or a better sense of family bond among workers. Wish he had lived to see this film.
MY hat is off to all of them. Then, now and forever. May God Bless Every One Of You!
Amazing story, I'd love to be back underground and back on a mine rescue team.
I work in a mine in West Virginia we had a fire on my section in 2015 our training kicked and got it under control I don’t know how we didn’t loose anyone, I won’t forget Wilberg we are all brothers rest easy my brothers
My dad was one of the members of the mine rescue teams that went in after the disaster. He hasn’t talked about it since it happened I was six when it occurred.
