Retired Postal Worker Running Across America To Honor Service Members Killed In Iraq

PROJECT AMERICA RUN:Remembering Their Sacrifice

According to the Reporter-Herald in Loveland, CO:

Army veteran Mike Ehredt, a retired postal clerk from Idaho, is running 4,514 miles from Astoria, Ore., to Rockland, Maine, to honor service members killed in Iraq.

From the website Project Run America:

 On May 1st 2010, Mike Ehredt, a retired Postal Clerk and Army Veteran, touched the wheel of his jogger stroller in the Pacific Ocean in Astoria, OR and began an epic 4514 mile journey across the country to Honor and Remember Service Members lost in Iraq. He is currently placing flags that hold a yellow ribbon bearing the Name, Rank, Service, Age and Hometown of those whose dreams and ambitions were taken so quickly from us. The flags are being placed each mile along the roads he is traveling in reverse chronological order by date of death, till the very last flag is placed on the shores of the Atlantic in Rockland, Maine.

This is a personal tribute, a silent memorial for those who have served with dignity and honor and whose sacrifice will never be forgotten
