Memorial Day Hike For Heros

Today is Memorial Day, 2014. So much of what this Day was set aside for has been lost in the hustle and bustle of American life. So many of us now take for granted what this day is truly set aside for.

Memorial Day is a day set aside for Americans to remember all the men and women who have died while serving our country in the military.

Memorial Day, which was formerly known as Decoration Day, “originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the war. By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died while in the military service.”

While there are so many who do not really know why this day is a special day in our nation’s history, there are still many who have not forgotten what this day is all about.

On Saturday, May 24, 2014, Boy Scout Troop 217 and joined with VFW Post 9299 in Alvarado, Texas, partnered together for a 25 mile hike honoring our fallen heroes.

The Marines Team finished first in the Hike, 20 minutes ahead of everyone else, and 50 minutes ahead of the last group.

Proceeds from the hike went to benefit The Fisher House.

Below are photos taken during the hike.

May God bless all who have lost their lives so that we may have freedom!
