I had to deal with some of the same stuff. All the officers of my old department were tailboard firemen with my dad. I grew up with a bunch of their kids and many of them were on with me. I spent a bunch of days in classes listening to "old timers" with stories about this fire and that wreck type stuff with my dad. Also got some of that " I can't believe this, I remember you climbing around on the trucks in your diapers" and" My god I feel old". Type stuff.
Then when I got hired on with my career dept. I was a rookie all over again.
