These photos were taken by Kevin Abel, Lakeview BLM District Public Affairs Officer.
The BLM has recently forged new partnerships with programs that reach out to veterans. In Lakeview and Medford, OR, and Spokane, WA, the BLM has formed three veteran crews with the capability to fight wilderness fires this summer. The firefighters featured in these photos are from Veterans Fire Crew #7 out of Lakeview Oregon.
If you would like to learn more about the crew please contact Kevin Abel at 541-947-6237.
Further information on each of these photos are contained in the meta tag information.
Questions just let me know.
