Action 238 - Honor Heroes (Mile 7).

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 238 - Honor Heroes (Mile 7). I will run mile seven in honor of LCpl Curtis Swenson. He is remembered as a proud Marine, a loving husband, son and brother.I will run as a tribute to this fallen Marine Corps Brother.


Marine Lance Cpl. Curtis M. Swenson died April 2, 2010 Serving During Operation Enduring Freedom; 20, of Rochester, Minn.; assigned to the 1st Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, 3rd Marine Division, III Marine Expeditionary Force, Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii; died April 2 while supporting combat operations in Helmand province, Afghanistan.
