3rd Batt Silent Run to "Remember and Recommit"

This morning 3rd Battalion held a two mile memorial run to commemorate the 14th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. MIDN 1/C Colin Magaro, alongside the national ensign, led the five companies that make up the battalion.

Throughout the run, all members of 3rd Battalion also remained silent as a tribute.

Before beginning the run Magaro informed the battalion that the run was being done to “remember and recommit.” In other words, while the main intention was to think about those who lost their lives on 9/11, he also wanted everyone to reflect on their commitment to service in the Armed Forces.

After completing the two mile run, the battalion gathered on Farragut Field for an invocation led by 3rd Battalion Chaplain LT Autumn Wilson.
