Heroes Week. Military Appreciation Week.
Seeing all the fires going on here in Southern California, I have to give a shout to these heroes who expose their lives for our safety. Here are some pictures from the L.A. Times:
Can you imagine the intesity of the heat and having to carry all that gear?
Long night on the fire line
the fires have claimed two firefighters this week. This from the L.A.Times:
Two firefighters were killed when they drove off the side of a treacherous road in the Mt. Gleason area, south of Acton, around 2:30 p.m. Sunday, said Los Angeles County Deputy Fire Chief Mike Bryant. They were later identified as Arnaldo Quinones, 35, of Palmdale and Ted Hall, 47, of San Bernardino County.
“This accident is tragic,” Bryant said, choking up as he spoke Sunday evening. “This is a very difficult time for L.A. County Fire Department and the men and women that serve day in, day out.”
So far the fires have covered 85,000 acres. Our thoughts and prayers to all the firefighters.
