Local veterans organizations recently reflected on the importance of Memorial Day, freedom and ways the community can honor those who have served.

“Memorial Day is set aside to honor those fallen veterans,” said Richard “Dick” Perry, commander of American Legion Riders post 24 in Tombstone. “The price of freedom is not free. They have to remember that. About 1% of the population volunteers to serve. If it weren’t for the men and women who serve, this country would not be free. “

Joerg Wallace, previous and incoming Commander of Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 9972 in Sierra Vista, said that the day should be focused on remembering and honoring veterans.

“It’s a day of remembrance, remembering our fallen and our living: those who’ve sacrificed everything for our country,” said Wallace.

Frank Hirrill, Adjutant at the American Legion Post 52 in Sierra Vista, said that the community should take the time to honor veterans on Memorial Day.

“Those are the people who died fighting for our freedom, and we just got to take a minute just to honor them,” said Hirrill.

How were you affected by the Monument Fire 10-years ago?

“It was a force of Nature," said Hereford homeowner @Angela A Daugherty. "I could see the smoke. It was red, and the air was so hot from it."

In June of 2011, the Monument Fire burned more than 30,000 acres of land in the Huachuca Mountains, and forced more than 12,000 individuals in the area to evacuate to avoid the flames.

The Herald/Review spoke with first responders, nonprofits, homeowners, and journalists who were on the front lines of the blaze.

Today, they share their experiences of the fire and reflections of the event 10 years later. 

These are their stories.

Stay tuned to our three-part article, video and audio series covering the fire from beginning to end. Each installment will be released on Friday’s, starting on June 11 on our Friday edition of the newspaper, the Daily Chirp podcast and a video feature on the Herald/Review's YouTube channel.
