Bruce Springsteen and Patti Scialfa were proud parents yesterday (January 14) as they witnessed their son, Sam, get sworn into the Jersey City Fire Department.

Local CBS affiliate WLNY reports the 26-year-old Springsteen graduated from the Monmouth County Fire Academy in 2014 and took his civil service exam in 2017. He also served as a volunteer firefighter at three different stations.

Bruce Springsteen was quoted saying, “It was a long road, he’s very dedicated, quite a few years and we are just excited for him today.”
