As Prescott and surrounding communities mark the fourth year since that horrendous disaster in Yarnell that took the lives of 19 fine young men who gave the final full measure of service to our community, I wish to recommend again that Granite Mountain be renamed Granite Mountain Hotshots in their honor.
Perhaps this could be officially designated upon the fifth anniversary next year. If anyone wishes to join me in this effort, please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
