Memorial Dispute

The Forest Service prohibits memorials except in extraordinary
circumstances and officials say they'd rather see a tree to retain
the naturalness of the forest.
The man who made the stone memorial to the three firefighters
has asked Senator Wayne Allard to help him get an exemption.
Two air tanker pilots died after their plane crashed at the Big
Elk fire near Rocky Mountain National Park. Within two weeks
another man died after his helicopter crashed during mop up
operations.
