** For the Fallen **

I am running, and dedicating, a mile for every casualty the United States Military suffered during Operations Enduring Freedom, Iraqi Freedom, and New dawn. Here you can find my entire documentation for this endeavor. I try to research every name, to get a personal look into the lives of those killed in action. There are times where I will have simple, 3 mile runs. In these instances, I will try and share what I have found on the individuals that I have run for. I will honor these men and women to the best of my ability, and I mean no disrespect with the lack of information that I post.

If there is a loved one, family member, or friend that you would like to add a special mention for, please feel free to email me at nhopkins7@live.com. Keep in mind that I am starting in 2001, so it might take a while to show, but I will get there.


To see my runs for those killed in action in the year 2003, click on the corresponding month of their death ::

January   February  March

I would like to take this moment to apologize. This project was intended to be updated with every daily run. Unfortunately, life is crazy and time-wise, this request just is not feasible. I will now continue this project on a monthly basis, and please understand that I by no means want to disrespect the fallen. There are just so many names…

However, throughout the month I do update an Excel sheet, and I will be posting this on a regular basis.

  1. this is such an amazing dedication and honor. You’ve read my pre-NYC 1/2 marathon blog… every run I do, my head ends up in a place where I am just reflecting on all of the men and women who have sacrificed. I run for them. Maybe my runs can make up the difference from where you started… because unfortunately, we are losing more all the time… it’s just buried in the press. =(
