I am a Gold Star Dad running in honor of my son, Army Sgt. Rhys W. Klasno, KIA 13 May 2007 in Haditha, Iraq.
Greetings, brothers and sisters. I’m a 69-year-old Marine veteran who just had open-heart surgery on June 13. I am just starting a walking regimen, starting with 2 miles per day. This 100-mile commitment may take me a while, but I will make the Veterans Day deadline. Semper Fi.
