Petition – 'Presidential Citizens Medal' For the Granite Mountain Hotshots

Award the Granite Mountain Hotshots division of the Prescott Fire Department the Presidential Citizens Medal.

Presidential Citizens Medal is the second highest civilian award, and is specifically for US citizens not necessarily serving in the federal government. The loss of 19 of the 20 Granite Mountain Hotshots in the Yarnell Hill Fire is a particularly severe loss, which reminds us of the bravery displayed every day by our firefighters in facing danger. All 20 members need to be properly honored in this loss, and the one survivor needs to be able to know we are with him in his loss.
