|RUN FOR THE TROOPS
Story from the Great Southwest
Congratulations to all the runners who participated in the 24 Hour Run for the Troops. My journey for this noble cause was the result of a simple e-mail and the persuasive and unwavering positive attitude of Maj. Marc Hoffmeister.
this event I had run the Marine Corps
24 Hour Run was a chance for some generous donors like Knight
Transportation, The Roney family, Mr. and Mrs. Jack Bobo and one runner
to assist soldiers currently serving overseas. I asked Maj. Hoffmeister
if he were to advise a new recruit about life in the Army what would he
tell them and his response was "Its an opportunity to touch the world and
change the lives of those in need" Selfless and moving words. Completing
this run by pushing my own physical limits to the edge and securing
donations for VVNW is just one way we can thank people like Maj.
Hoffmeister and Marine Lance Cpl. Michael J. Williams of
To have passion and a vision is a gift. To the veterans of the past, soldiers of the present and to the future men and women who will serve, you are our heroes. Thank you for sharing you gift.
