Thank you for visiting our website. We are a group of families, friends, and supporters of our fallen military heroes. We gather every summer to walk one mile to honor and remember those who have served our country, and paid the ultimate sacrifice - their lives.
Our inspiration to begin walking was the "Run for the Fallen" event, where a team ran from California to Arlington National Cemetery. They honored and remembered a different fallen hero for every mile they ran. Visit the Run For the Fallen website at http://www.runforthefallen.org.
Please visit us again soon. As we draw nearer to Summer, we will post more information online. We will walk to on Saturday, August 23, 2014, at 10:00AM. We will meet at Terrace Park, on Madison Street, directly East of Lake Ave (near the baseball diamonds - at the picnic shelter). We hope to see you there!
After the walk, we will gather for a shared meal at the park.
With love, honor, and rememberance,
PROUD Gold Star Family Member (step-brother) of SSG Jeremy D Vrooman, KIA 7/15/2008, Kn'an, Iraq
