PRESCOTT, AZ (CBS5) -

A special pin will be unveiled Saturday honoring the 19 fallen firefighters of the Granite Mountain Hotshot crew.

The pin was designed by an American Red Cross volunteer who helped with recovery efforts following the Yarnell Hill Fire.

All but one of the 20 Hotshots on the Prescott-based crew perished in the fire on June 30.

The pin will be given to more than 700 Red Cross workers and volunteers from 10 counties in Arizona.
