Firefighter take a knee! On the ground, in the truck, in the air tanker of chopper, in the office on the radio or phone, whatever you do to fight the Funny River Horse Trail fire, we here in Alaska wish to extend our hands toward you for thanks and God’s blessing for all that you have done. To you that camped on the line and faced the raging inferno with mattock, saw and axe. You that flew blindly close to the wall of flames and dropped water. You who inhaled smoke for hours and sweated facing imaginable heat, you who decided which crews to deploy and direction to take to save one home.
