Run For The Fallen

Cross posted from Miss Beth's Victory Dance. HT to Brat.

If it's Monday, Run for the Fallen must be in Longton, KS.

Since June 14, 2008, Flag Day, a dedicated team of runners has been running across America from Fort Irwin, CA to Arlington National Cemetery, one mile for every Soldier, Sailor, Airmen, and Marine killed in Operation Iraqi Freedom. For ten weeks, team members are marking each mile with an American flag and signcard in an apolitical reflection of remembrance of each service member.

The run is a living memorial for every one of our fallen heroes. This is an opportunity for all Americans to get involved in honouring every single hero killed in the War on Terror.
