The 5th Annual Run/Walk for the Fallen in Rome, NY will be held on Sunday, August 19, 2012 at 0900 at the B-52 site located on Perimeter Road on the old Griffiss AFB. I am inviting anyone who wants to participate; friends, families and children. You only have to run/walk one mile, but you may run/walk more if you desire. There is no fee just a sense of honor.
