I just got back from Medford, Oregon for the 9 firefighters killed in the helicopter crash on the Iron Comples in California. I must say that it was one of the most amazing things I have seen.

Thanks for the link! This happened while i was at fire camp, shook up everyone pretty bad, specially one of the instructors who does the same stuff they were doing when they died. I hadnt really been able to find anything about the memorial service. It sorta bugs me that this wasnt a bigger deal in the media, but thems the breaks.

Im based out of John Day Oregon and the crew in the helicopter crash was from Medford Oregon. We worked with them on the Siskiyou Complex for awhile then my crew went back on forest in Oregon and they got called to the Iron Complex.

All the bases asked who wanted to go to the memorial so we took the 6 hour drive to go.

thats cool. lol wish i was old enough to do stuff like that... actually, thats a lie, i wish i was fit enough to do stuff like that. but nh doesnt get much by way of forest fires, and im not a fan of travel via plane, so its really not an option any way i look at it, lol.

at any rate and back on topic, its terrible about those firefighters.
