National Guardsmen Running from Maine to Arlington

Two National Guardsmen are running 550 miles from Maine to Arlington National Cemetery.

Col. Jack Mosher and Maj. Herbert Brock are taking turns running daily half marathons, for a total of 26.2 miles every day. They’re also documenting their experience on the web.

The men say doing it to promote “resiliency” and to encourage “the warrior spirit in everyone.”

Their journey, which is now in its third day, will wrap up with stops at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, the World War II Memorial and, finally, a visit to Arlington National Cemetery on May 28.
