ONE MILE FOR EVERY SERVICE MEMBER KILLED IN OPERATION IRAQI FREEDOM.
Beginning Flag Day, June 14, 2008, a dedicated team of runners will run 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 will mark each mile with an American flag and signcard in an apolitical reflection of remembrance of each service member.http://www.runforthefallen.org/
The Fallen are shown by the date of their sacrifice and the route for that day is given as well as a Google map link...
This group is apolitical... they are simply honoring our Fallen Heroes.
These are the dates/locations of my son's friends and his mentor, Sgt. Salie.
Day 25 July 9 Route 160/389, CO to Grenville, NM

If anyone is going to be where these men and others will be honored, I hope they can get out and show their support, perhaps take pictures for those who cannot be there.God Bless Our Heroes.
