Marines hike full marathon to raise money for wounded troops

Sharply contrasting the bright, buzzing collage of more than 22,000 competitors at the 2010 Honolulu Marathon, firefighters from Aircraft Rescue Firefighting, Marine Corps Air Station Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii, and a black belt Marine Corps Martial Arts Program instructor from the School of Infantry West— Detachment Hawaii, stand ready at the marathon’s starting line, Sunday. For the second year in a row, the Marines hiked the 26.3-mile marathon with boots, camouflage trousers and 65-pound packs to raise money for wounded Marines and sailors at Wounded Warrior Battalion West, Detachment Hawaii, on Marine Corps Base Hawaii.
