You can find out more about this organization at www.runforthefallen.com. They ran a mile for every service member that has been killed in Afghanistan and Iraq since March 2003. They placed flags with each service members name and home town at each mile. North Carolina’s 2008 Memorial Run started at Fayetteville and ended at Greenville, with flags to honor each fallen hero placed at every mile along the route.
