MEDAL OF HONOR — Andrew Ashcraft

Last week 19 firefighters were killed in a wildfire while battling a blaze on a ridge in Yarnell, Arizona. This team of brave men were called the Granite Mountain Hotshots and among them was father of four, man of faith, hero, brother, son, friend to many, and skateboarder, Andrew Ashcraft. In 2011 he was awarded Rookie of the Year for that fire season and he loved every minute of every day he spent being a fireman as it was something he dreamed of since he was a boy. Andrew’s friend, Ryan Moser put together an edit of Andrew skating throughout the years. Foundation skateboards will be releasing a tribute board to help raise money for Andrew and his 18 brethren’s families. The board will be available soon and we’ll be sure to keep you posted the moment it is. Please take a moment and tell the people you love that you love them. Walk outside today and look at how beautiful the world is even when it’s ugly. Appreciate everything it has to offer. Put into perspective and remember that we’re all just here doing the best we can with what we have and please, please keep Andrew and his fellow firefighters in your thoughts. – sb
