Remembering...


I drove up to Prescott Valley on Friday to visit with my sister Judy.  When I was headed home I spotted this truck on the highway with his own little memorial to the 19 firefighters who lost their lives in the Yarnell hill fire last year.  Seemed like a perfect way to end the week after Memorial Day.

THAT was a scary story. I remember reading about what firefighters do when overcome by flames. I never knew that.
Remember.

The June, 2014 issue of the Atlantic magazine has a full article : "wildfire: How 19 died on an Arizona mountain."

Sad, but never forget !

That is interesting. I still come across some memorials in residential front yards from time to time.
It was great to see you!

We lost 8 firemen last summer. They are the true heroes.
