Worldwide News caused by the loss of 19 Firefighters , working to Save LIVES & PROPERTY in the USA ! ALL the Major News Networks followed this story for DAYS !
Yet NOW that the Families are left Destitute , WHERE ARE THEY ?
Andrew Ashcraft , father of 4 , was a member of the Granite Mountain Hot Shot Crew , supposedly a FULL TIME EMPLOYEE of the " City of Prescott , Az " ! Seems that his Employment Records were lost in the Fires , as was his Supervisors !
Very convenient for the " City Administration " , currently they seem to think , that it is OK to deny his Family's Benefits ! Andrew being a fulltime Employee of the City , would have meant that he had no time to work elsewhere , thus now the City refuses his " Entitlements " , the Family has no income ?
SHAME ON THOSE MONGRELS !
Last year i was appalled to read of the US attitude to their Firefighters , i not only signed the Change.org Petition started by John Lauer of the Tatanka Hot Shot Crew , i also blogged about this SHORTSIGHTED Approach to those who RISK THEIR LIVES to save the Property of OTHERS !

This was followed later with another blog post :
Regretably , i did not follow up on the Promises made by President Obama , so many thinks that he has promised lately seem to be subject to the " Whims of Congress "! Even now , i am seeing on the News Networks , more News of Fresh Fires breaking out in the USA , and at the same time other States suffering inundations from Flooding , by Epic Rains .
HOW MANY MORE FIREFIGHTERS HAVE TO DIE ?
Oh , excuse me , 12000 people die each year because of the 2nd amendment , another OBAMA FAILURE !
Seems living in the USA is a laugh a minute , if you are a " Responsible Citizen " ? If the GUN Crazies don't get you , or the Sequestration doesn't cause you & your Family suffering , then the Community will Stand behind you whilst you lose your LIFE in their Service , then deny YOUR FAMILY any prospect of FAIR PLAY ?
Here is the link to sign the PETITION :
