Action 188 - Honor Heroes (Mile 3).

I am dedicating each mile that I run in the Pasadena Marathon to another Marine Corps hero who has made the ultimate sacrifice, so that in my own small way, they may be honored, acknowledged, and remembered.

Action 188 - Honor Heroes (Mile 3). I will run mile three in honor of 1st Lt. Michael Johnson. He is remembered as the latest link in a family of Marine veterans, a proud husband, and a man most comfortable in the great outdoors. I will run as a tribute to a fallen Marine Corps Brother.


1st Lt. Michael E. Johnson, 25, of the U.S. Marine Corps 7th Communications Battalion, 3rd Marine Headquarters Group, III Marine Expeditionary Force, headquartered in Okinawa, Japan, died September 8, 2009 while supporting combat operations in Kunar province, Afghanistan. He is survived by his wife Durinda Johnson.
