Let's not forget today is the anniversary of the tragic loss of all but one the Granite Mountain Hotshots. 19 men of the 20 man crew were tragically lost that day.

Although I didn't know any of the men on that crew, I have participated in prescribed burns with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources. To this day it still chills me to the core thinking of this event. My hat is off to you brothers. God's Speed!
