Each day, we will randomly highlight one service member’s life, and include links and stories. We choose to never forget, and this is our way, before the run, to remember our fallen service members.


Lance Cpl. Richard Z. James was killed when he was shot in an exchange of gunfire with insurgents near Ramadi, in the Sunni Triangle. He was assigned to the 3rd Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division, II Marine Expeditionary Force, Camp Lejeune, N.C.

We will run for Richard on July 25, 2008 outside Linn Creek, Missouri.
