Bruce Springsteen's Son Becomes A New Jersey Firefighter

Bruce Springsteen's youngest son, Sam Springsteen, 20, was recently certified as a firefighter near his home in Monmouth County, New Jersey. The youngster graduated from the Monmouth County Fire Academy earlier this month, along with 41 other new firefighters.

According to USA Today, the Boss' son will start off serving as a volunteer fireman at the Colts Neck Fire Department.

Sam put in over 188 hours of training at the fire academy, and both his father and mom Patti Scialfa attended his graduation ceremony earlier this month.

"This is not an easy course," Monmouth County Fire Marshal Henry Stryker III told the Asbury Park Press. "There's a lot of physical stuff and a lot of book work."

Sam's mom shared a photo of Sam decked out in his full gear, adding the hashtags #OurFamilyHero.
