|From his website:|
"On May 1st 2010, Mike Ehredt, a retired Postal Clerk and Army Veteran, touched the wheel of his jogger stroller in the Pacific Ocean in Astoria, OR and began an epic 4514 mile journey across the country to Honor and Remember Service Members lost in Iraq. He placed flags that hold a yellow ribbon bearing the Name, Rank, Service, Age and Hometown of those whose dreams and ambitions were taken so quickly from us. The flags were placed each mile along the roads he traveled in reverse chronological order by date of death, till the very last flag he placed on the shores of the Atlantic in Rockland, Maine on October 15th, 2010."
This was a personal tribute, a silent memorial for those who have served with dignity and honor and whose sacrifice will never be forgotten.
Mike's blog is full of touching, wonderful stories about his amazing journey. I can guarantee you that some of his stories will bring you to tears.
Thanks to everyone who followed Training Because I Can! over the last nine years. This blog started with Addison's Disease, hypothyroidism and a crazy idea of doing an Ironman distance triathlon. My life has changed and so has this blog. I am using this blog strictly for Addison's Support topics from here on out. I hope to continue providing people with hints for living life well with adrenal insufficiency.
