It always gets dusty when I think about them. When they died I was on day 16 at another fire. You could have heard a pin drop in fire camp. It was devastating to morale...command swapped out several crews just to make sure everyone had their heads on straight.

One of their favorites when they went out on whiskey row was Patron.

In honer of the Granite mountain hotshots.I'll make mine a double.

Sorry for the loss
Link Posted: 6/30/2015 8:43:21 PM EDT
I had just moved out here to Prescott when it happened.  Granite Mountain itself had been on fire just a few weeks prior to the Yarnell fire.
Link Posted: 6/30/2015 8:45:29 PM EDT
Rest assured they were honored here in Prescott today.

This week the State of Arizona was able to purchase the site were they fell.

This is the picture I'd like to remember them by...


This was taken just weeks before they died. They were so proud  to save this ancient tree from the Doce fire, just a few miles away. This is the picture I'd like to be used for a memorial.

They were all really good guys and they were a really good crew. it physically hurts to think about still.

Truly great men. The embodiment of what it means to be a hero.

Bump for heroes, doing what they do. Real men like you and I who volunteered to take care of business. To do what they thought was right and needed.

Based on all evidence, they unfortunately died following the errant orders of the acting crew leader who attempted to unsafely move them to prtoect structure he had a vested interest in.  There is no logical explanation for them being in the place they were when they were burned over.  Just another reminder to think for yourself in all situations, and always question authority.  Numerous violations of the standard firefighting orders...

Nice rebuttal.  Based on your avatar I'm sure you've seen the case studies during your annual refresher at a minimum.
Link Posted: 6/30/2015 9:55:07 PM EDT

It's about a different fire and a different group of men who died...but everytime I think of the Yarnell 19, I think of this book

His son ended up writing a couple good books too. But young men and fire is an outstanding read.

RIP to the 19 who lost their lives.
