Remembering the 19 fallen heroes of the Granite Mountain Hotshots lost Sunday in the Yarnell Hill wildfire in Prescott, Arizona. At an average age of 22, their stories were short but no doubt will have a lasting and timeless legacy.
The Firefighter’s Cross stands for the courage, service, and sacrifice of those who put themselves in harm’s way for the sake and safety of strangers. No doubt, those men added luster to the crosses all in the fire service wear today.
Beyond the 19, there are spouses, children, family, and friends left behind. Their paths are forever changed by this horrific loss.
Remember the heroes. Never forget.
