Marine Run Finishes Up As They Remember The Fallen

Posted: Updated:
Fort Gordon, GA -

The 9th annual Marine Tribute Run wrapped up early Thursday morning. Military personnel took turns running for 24 hours a day, for 10 days. They were running in honor of the more than 1,500 marines and sailors who lost their lives while serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.

"I think they would feel honored and appreciated that they are not forgotten and we remember them all by name, all of the marines and navy corpsmen.  I think they would feel honored," said Captain Dallas Butler, of the U.S. Marine Corps.

This is the 9th year they've held this Marine Run.
