On Flag Day, June 14, 2008, a dedicated team of runners ran 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 marked each mile with an American flag and signcard in an apolitical reflection of remembrance of each service member.
Each year since the run across America, runners from around the world have joined Run for the Fallen in remembering our fallen. Over 50,000+ participants and over 200,000+ miles have been collectively run in remembrance of those fallen in OIF and OEF.
Many silimar events continue to be organized across the country and we are grateful for all who dedicate themselves to establishing or participating in the honoring and remembering of our military fallen heroes and their families.
Regardless of what state you represent we ask that you join our Honor and Remember community and help us bring tribute to every service member who ultimately gave unselfishly for the freedoms we all enjoy.
