Granite Mountain Hotshots Funeral: Most Touching Procession Videos

Today, Prescott Valley, Arizona, hosts the funeral for the 19 members of the Granite Mountain Hotshots who died last Sunday trying to quell the Yarnell Hill Fire as it spread throughout central Arizona.

In honor of their funeral, we have assembled the most touching videos of the procession that occurred Sunday morning. Nineteen white hearses made their way from Phoenix to Prescott, passing by crowds of people coming to pay their respects by releasing balloons or waving American flags.

Here are those videos:
