Hello, my name is Nicholas Diaz, I am twenty six years old and I am beginning my journey to become a firefighter. I plan on doing three years with the Army Reserve as I finish my EMT and my Firefighter 1 training. All of these things will increase my chances of becoming a firefighter faster but I've been declined by the Army Reserve because of my neck tattoo. I've been told to remove it and then come back. I even tried to join The Marines but they've declined me because of the tattoo, too.
I just moved to Montclair, New Jersey from New York City to start fresh and follow my dreams of becoming a firefighter, so I am not working at the moment but I am looking. Please, if anyone can help, it would be gladly appreciated and I'll be sure to update soon! -Nick
