This was the largest loss of life of first-responders since 9/11.
The town of Yarnell and the people of Arizona will never forget and will forever honor the 19 heroes of the elite Granite Mountain Hotshot fire crew who lost their lives in an act of self-sacrificing bravery.
Out of my deepest respect for these fallen heroes, their families and the communities of Prescott, Peeple’s Valley, and Yarnell I ask that you continue to keep them in your prayers.
And, I now ask you to join me and my colleagues for a moment of silence to honor the Yarnell 19’s ultimate act of courage and sacrifice.
