On Fox's SLEEPY HOLLOW, he gave the Headless Horseman a towering presence. But in real life, it was Jeremy Owens' legacy that was towering, as an ocean rescue captain, trainer and mixed martial arts master. Owens died unexpectedly this week, and the Wrightsville Beach Fire Department is now honoring their late friend and coworker.

#FullStory: Whatever you may think about "the media", let me tell you THIS is why I do what I do. Today was a very good day. I got to wish an INCREDIBLE woman a very happy 100th birthday and hear a tiny bit about her remarkable life. Ms. Reva is a WWII veteran. She volunteered for service as soon as women were allowed to, later became a drill sergeant and then found herself personally bringing Hitler's secretary from the Dachau camp to Berlin to face a court martial. What a woman.

Happy 4th of July from the Wrightsville Beach Fire Department. If you come to the beach today, swim near a lifeguard and drink plenty of water. It's going to be a hot one. Don't forget to wear some sunscreen to avoid that Red Lobster look this evening.

Rest easy Brother- the handful of times I did meet you were full of good memories from seeing dolphins swimming next to humans during Ironman,taking your boat for a spin and talking on the phone half way across the country.
WBFD YOU GUYS SAVED MY LIFE! THANK YOU!
I don’t know who the female and male lifeguards working the South End today are but they have been working their tails off! They have pulled several folks out from the rough waters near the jetty. These photos were taking from their latest rescue as they are fighting the rough waters to get to the two swimmers. Bravo WB Lifeguards πŸŠπŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸŠπŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸ˜Ž
