Hero and Remembrance Walk, Run or Roll
For Immediate Release
Immediate need for donated military boots
Donated boots will signify fallen soldiers since 9/11
Fort Campbell is hosting a Hero and Remembrance Walk, Run or Roll, Nov. 1st.
This event calls for military boots to be on display, one boot for each service member who has died while on active duty since 9/11. This makes for a total of 3,500 pairs needed to represent approximately 6,810 U.S. service members who have died in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. In order to meet this goal, Soldiers, Family members, Veterans and other community members are encouraged to get involved in the effort by donating pairs of military boots.
Prior to the run, the boots will be tagged with each service member’s name, date of death, rank, branch, etc. Each nameplate will include a photo and be color coded by year. A small American flag will also be paired with each boot. Boots are being collected at all Hughes and Coleman offices or sent via Fed Ex to 2703 Michigan Ave. on Fort Campbell.
Boots can be military grade or boots worn by soldiers in combat and can be in any condition provided that they are laced up and able to stand up on their own. Event organizers ask that each boot also include and empty upside down water bottle in each boot for stability.
For more information about the boot donation or to volunteer, call (270) 412-7251.
