GALVESTON, TX – One life. One flag. One mile.
That’s the motto of U.S. Army Vet Mike Ehredt on his 2,000 mile run from Minnesota to Texas.
Over the course of nearly 3 months, Ehredt has stopped at every mile to plant a flag honoring a fallen U.S. soldier.
Mike encouraged marathoners and other veterans to join him on portions of his Forrest Gump-like run, and many came out to help him finish his journey in Galveston.
Ehredt’s journey ends with a salute in the gulf and cheers from inspired bystanders.
2 years ago, Mike did a similar run from Oregon to Maine. The total amount of soldiers he has personally honored is now over 6,000.
No matter the number, a novel, and tiring, way to remember our soldiers.
