Bruce Springsteen's son, Sam, was one of 42 members of the Monmouth County Fire Academy in New Jersey that graduated this month, reports the Hollywood Reporter. The Boss and his wife, Patti Scialfa, attended the ceremony earlier this month. Sam will join the Colts Neck Fire Department.

Sciafa posted a photo of her son in uniform on Instagram. "My youngest son, Sam, graduated from Monmouth County Fire Academy tonight," Sciafa stated. "#Proud #OurFamilyHero."

Sam had to complete training in the areas of fire rescue, extinguishment, Hazmat, and CPR--topics covered in various NFPA codes and standards.

I've been a fan of the Boss ever since I was a tyke growing up in New Jersey. Enjoy the following tune--one of my favorites from Bruce--and let us know your top Springsteen hit in the comments section below.
