Texas A&M Forest Service Firefighters received a couple of special thank-yous from people in the state of North Carolina.
Back in November and December, five of them traveled to North Carolina to help crew there fight the Party Rock fire that threatened the complex mountain region in the state.
Those five received an official accolade sent from the governor's office, as well as a handwritten note from a child.
The child's note reads: "Dear firefighters, You are brave and courageous. You are our heroes. We look up to you." Included is a drawing of a firefighter.
