ONE MILE FOR EVERY SERVICE MEMBER KILLED
IN OPERATION IRAQI FREEDOM & OPERATION ENDURING FREEDOM.
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.
