Flag at half staff for the Granite Mountain Hotshots

I’ve been so wrapped up in the new RV I forgot to lower the flag after the 19 Granite Mountain Hotshots died. The owners of the campground have 2 sons who are fireman and we talked about the tragedy, you could see how the deaths of those men affected them. It’s hard to understand 19 people dying while doing something they loved, they were hero’s who did the hardest job imaginable. Our thoughts and prayers go to the families.
