Granite Mountain Hot Shot Crew Anniversary

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.

For more information on this wildland fire fighting team see the official Facebook site at:

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!

Yes Doug more grieving people left - it is  important to honour them.

  They laid down their lives for others.   I always amazed at the volunteer fire fighters etc.

Also prayers and blessing to  those that were lost at the dam recently.

Thank you, Doug. Yes, yes, yes! We must remember those who left us so valiantly...and the families that grieve for them so deeply. May God bless them and their families who mourn for them.
